The young man had a lucky penalty in comparison with the case of Jammie Thomas-Rasset ridiculous. It must be downloaded every 24 songs to pay $ 1,900,000.

The organization IFPI, which protects copyrights worldwide, focuses on large but also small fish.

"A final decision by the Swedish court is contrary to the political process led by the founders of Pirate Bay, which had charged prison sentence and fine aggregate of 44 million Swedish crowns," said Chairman Swedish Pirate Party (Swedish Piratpartiet), Rick Falkvinge and continued: "It seems that the Swedish courts slowly come to their senses.
