Today man kind took a step back. Today 4 men were sentenced for helping people share information. I agree that some of that information is bound by outdated laws, but the pirate bay tracker is a key player in an open internet for knowledge and information for all. It is quite obvious that this action against these men will not totally take down the bittorrent network or even take down the pirate bay, it is just putting a larger seperation between large media comapnies and consumers. This court case just causes more resentment from end users and large media corporations and will just push people to move to get there content by illegal means. Check out TorrentFreak.com for more information on the trial and on the bittorrent network.
