Abstract:  The Pirate Bay. Three simple words. Such strong reactions. Proponents point to a vibrant forum for distributing files. Critics lament massive pirating of copyrighted works. The Swedish district court recently found The Pirate Bay (TPB) guilty of making copyrighted works available. This article explores the consequences of this decision. It first explains the technology underlying TPB and provides an overview of the website. It then analyses the court’s opinion. Finally, the article applies the opinion’s reasoning to the activities at issue in the US case of MGM v Grokster1 and to the Google search engine.
