First Swedish P2P Prosecution

A man in V?ster?s has become the first Swede to be charged with illegally sharing files via the Internet.

"The 27-year old at the centre of the case is accused of having the film Hipp Hipp Hora on his computer, which he allowed others to download. If convicted, he could face up to two years imprisonment.

The case was brought after a tip off from Antipiratbyr?n (APB), a lobby organization set up by the media industry to combat illegal downloading in Sweden. Since the man was reported APB has found itself in hot water, with an Internet company accusing the organization itself of illegally downloading films and games."
