Pirate Bay Closer to a Retrial, Demands New Investigation

| The connections of Pirate Bay judge Tomas Norström to national and 
| international pro-copyright lobby groups are even more far reaching than 
| initially reported. Consequently, many leading figures within the Swedish 
| judicial system are now convinced that a retrial is necessary so the 
| defendants can have an unbiased trial.

| One of the Pirate Bay’s co-founders is calling on Swedish police to conduct a 
| new investigation into the notorious BitTorrent site’s operations. 
| Peter Sunde - aka BrokeP - said in a blog post yesterday that himself, and

| breaching copyright laws last month, could demand “a completely new police 
| investigation”.

| One of the biggest cases in file-sharing history ended last week with The
| Pirate Bay Four sentenced to huge fines and jail time. Today it is revealed
| that far from being impartial, the judge in the case is a member of
| pro-copyright groups - along with Henrik Pontén, Monique Wadsted and Peter
| Danowsky. There are loud calls for a retrial.

| Software Foundation, Ray Beckerman (NewYorkCountryLawyer), and NYCL's
| blog, 'Recording Industry vs. The People'. The 9-page response (PDF) — 4
| pages longer than the document to which it was responding — termed the FSF an
| organization 'dedicated to eliminating restrictions on copying,
| redistribution, and modifying computer programs', and accused the FSF of
| having an 'open and virulent bias against copyrights' and 'blatant bias'
| against the record companies.


RIAA publicly humiliates judge Nancy Gertner

| Hired RIAA attack lawyers Timothy Reynolds (Holme Roberts & Owen) and Daniel
| Cloherty  (Dwyer & Collora) apparently think it’s perfectly acceptable to
| tell a judge to take a hike.
