The Sweedish police on Saturday arrested Peter Sunde, co-founder of the bittorrent site The Pirate Bay.
Peter Sunde had been wanted by Interpol since 2012 after being sentenced in Sweden to prison and fined for breaching copyright laws.
Pirate Bay has been a popular provider of torrent links to -- often copyrighted -- music and movie files that were stored on other users' computers. Swedish subsidiaries of music and film companies had taken the company to court for claiming damages for lost revenue.
In September, 2012, Cambodia arrested and deported another Pirate Bay co-founder at Sweden's request. Four men linked to Pirate Bay were also sentenced to one year in prison and a fine.
However, the website is still online, registered in the Seychelles.
