    I know you can't say the name of it here, but the staff of a very notable file sharing site just got found guilty by a Swedish court (you guys probably know what it is). The four have been fined the equivalent of USD $905,000 each and sentenced to one year in jail for "assisting in making copyrighted content available." [​IMG] Of course, they are planning to appeal the decision.

    Unfortunately this will have dire consequences for internet freedoms... Can't link to a source because that will give it away. [​IMG]

    Aw, I remember a time when you couldn't even say the name of these sites. Good call. Haven't been on the temp for a while.
