Pirate Bay Judge Found To Be A Member Of Various Copyright Associations

Quote:
The judge in the Pirate Bay copyright case has been accused of bias, after he was found to be a member of a copyright protection group.
Four members of the Pirate Bay BitTorrent site were found guilty and sentenced to a year in prison. They have already filed an appeal, and are planning to include the new information about Swedish judge Tomas Norström.

What do you expect, wouldn't be surprised if more people were paid off to find them guilty.

Conflict of interest, anyone? It's amazing that they didn't pick up on this sooner!

Exactly... This is the bit which is just completely ridiculous though:

Quote:
According to a report on Swedish news site The Local, Norström (The Judge) is a member of the Swedish Copyright Association and on the board of the Swedish Association for the Protection of Industrial Property. He reportedly told Swedish station Sveriges Radio: “My view has been that these activities do not constitute a conflict of interest.
<Dr Evil...> Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrright.... </Dr Evil>

Oh your kidding.. Thats rediculous.

Aside from the case being overturned.. That Judge should lose his position for failing to declare the clear and obvious conflict of interest.

Blaming a BitTorrent site for copyright violations is like blaming a gun shop for murder.

Well, you can blame a gun shop for murder, at least accessory too, if you can prove they delivered weapons to unauthorized people.

It's a bad example. A better example is... well, a neighborhood yard sale. People in the neighborhood sell or give away anything they like. So if someone is selling pot at their little table, it'd be like taking the organizers of the yard sale to prison.

And then the courts would find similarity between the terms 'yard' and 'grass' and deem that the organizers REALLY meant POT Sale instead of Yard Sale. And therefor are even more guilty.

It is an absolute FACT that the order of the parts in a watercooling system doesnt matter.
This isnt anyones opinion, its a simple fact of watercooling
and one of the most common misconceptions. It's been proven more times than I can count
