Pirate Bay undeterred by prosecution

A public statement made by Prosecutor Hakan Roswall makes it clear he still intends to press charges against the administrators of the popular torrent tracking site, The Pirate Bay, despite a terribly unsuccessful raid made by Swedish police last may.

The raid caused a couple of days downtime, in which 180 servers were confiscated and 3 administrators were held in custody for a few hours. After that, it was business as usual.

Tobias Andersson from The Pirate bay said if they became outlawed in Sweden, they would simply setup in a different country.

"We expected this, and of course we don't think they will succeed. I think they feel they have to do it. It would look bad otherwise since they had 20 to 30 police officers involved in the raid."

According to Roswall, The Pirate Bay breaches copyright, helps others breach copyright, and conspire to breach copyright.
