Founder of Pirate Bay is not allowed access
to books while a mass murderer can read
whatever he wants
Stratholm (aka Anokata) is one of the founders of Piratebay,
right now he is in a prison located in denmark. the thing
that got my attention is that Anders a mass murderer who killed
innocent children has more accessed the public then a man "breaking"
the copyright laws. the manis not even allowed to read books or
getting visited by his own mother!

Here are a few things about this case people forget to mention when they go all up in arms over it:
1, He is not arrested for pirating, its not even one of the charges, he is arrested for hacking into and stealing information from Danish police databases which is a serious ******* offence.
2, He is kept under such conditions to prevent him from compromising evidence by signalling to any co-conspirators or in any other way disrupt the investigation.
3, If found guilty, or when the police is certain that he cannot disrupt the investigation, he will be imprisoned under normal conditions, or since it is IT criminality it will more likely be low-security with no internet.

Get your facts straight before jumping on the damn bandwagon.

They're not imprisoned in the same country you doofus
One is in Denmark
One is in Norway
Different countries
Different laws
Also why the **** is he in Denmark?
Isn't he a swede?

They are imprisoned in different countries with different prison systems. Of course they're going to be treat differently.
User avatar #43 to #15 - qqmumu (01/09/2014) [-]
Yeah, but have you seen a prison in Denmark?? Some of the cells are like livingrooms in small apartments.
#45 to #43 - polop (01/09/2014) [-]
I know Norway has one of (if not the) least punishing prison systems in the world (they they are for rehabilitation, not punishment). So its expected for them to be easier. In-fact, I'd be surprised if Norway's prisons were harder to be in that any other around the world.

You reeeaaaaally don't know anything about Denmark, do you?
#62 to #56 - polop (01/09/2014) [-]
The Norweigien prison system is so tame, the longest prison sentence you can get is technically 21 years. You can only get sentenced more if when you are ready to leave a court decides you are remorseful/not rehabilitated.

Danish prisons may be pretty tame (i wouldn't know anything about danish prisons so i'm taking you on your word), but holy **** Norway has a prison where you live on an island for a while, sunbathe and pretty much relax. (see Bastoy Prison Island).
User avatar #72 to #62 - qqmumu (01/09/2014) [-]
Rehabilitation is also danish prisons' primary focus.
User avatar #81 to #72 - wishingwell (01/09/2014) [-]
but what they're arguing against is basicly what human right NGO's have said the last decade - that the danish solitary confinement rules are ****** up (even worse than some american states).
In denmark it's possible to be in solitary confinement for up to 8 weeks in a row, PRIOR to the trial.
And if one consideres that solitary confinement, with nothing to occupy the mind, is a haven-like breeding ground for mental illnesses like schizophrenia and worse, it's like pissing ones pants - it works for now, but creates future criminals and social outcasts, making it that harder for them to be assimilated into sociaty again - and increases the risc of them being affiliated with the mental-health-institutes later in life - efficiently costing more money for the danish government in the long run.
#91 to #81 - polop (01/09/2014) [-]
None of that changed the fact they are different contries. Which was my point in the first place.
User avatar #92 to #91 - wishingwell (01/09/2014) [-]
jup, and i was just making the point people should (imo) - that the danish prison system is flawed, when it comes to our solitary confinement rules.

and i applaud the norwegian prisonsystem, for it's humanity and for not creating socially ****** up people.
#93 to #92 - polop (01/09/2014) [-]
Well, The Norwegian prison system has the lowest re-offending percentage in the world, so they must be doing something right. (whereas in the USA it can be has hish as 50% in Norway it is around 20%, only 16% for Bastoy)

16 years is considered a lifetime sentence in Denmark, and only 37 people have been sentenced to this in Denmark since 1980.... so, the prisons and punishments are much a like in Denmark and Norway, just like a ton of other stuff.

All the 			*******		 			********		.   
If all those neckbeard "hackers" would take the time to actually read stuff, they would realise, that the solitary confinement is only prior the trial, so that he can't interfere with investigation and such.   
But wait there is more, Norway has the same laws, meaning Breivik got same treatment, just like "ol neckbeard pirate bay" here wil get similar treatment if he gets a sentence. the danish and norwegian are in many ways similar     
And you know what i'm not even done yet.   
Guess what, he's not in custody for copyright infrigment. He allegedly hacked the danish police database in one of the biggest cyberattacks in our nations history, meaning he got millions of personal files. Not really the same as sharing movies now is it.   
   
I seriosly don't get how people can just jump on bandwagons without knowing 			****		 about it..

oh no, a criminal is being treated like a criminal. lets start a revolution and break him free. the government is obviously scared enough of us computer folk that they're willing to put us under max security. its not like he committed a major crime and poses a threat to society and government alike forcing them to keep under surveillance to prevent him doing it again.

I quote this article about his trial and remand: www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Andre_sprog/English/2013/12/19/130343.htm : "Warg is charged with having colluded with a 20-year-old Dane in copying civil and business registration numbers from the police’s driving licence register."
This case is not about him being a Pirate Bay founder, it's about him illegally hacking into the servers of CSC Denmark.

Fairs. I don't really know anything about his case, just that copyright issues hold unjustly tough punishments.

As a musician, I really don't like this website. It's making it harder and harder to be successful. I get pirating the huge bands and artists, they're already rich as **** , but kind of ****** up doing it to more underground bands. But hey that's just my opinion
#126 to #122 - anon (01/09/2014) [-]
Have you taken into consideration that you produce **** music and thats why its hard for you to "make it"?
User avatar #165 to #122 - bigsteamingpile (01/10/2014) [-]
So we do away with torrents. We take Youtube down. Any website or app that allows the user to obtain or listen to "free" music. Spotify is no longer free. Pandora no longer free. That old ass site, playlist.com, done. iTunes is no longer allowed to have a "single of the week". You get what I'm saying. Anything and everything "free music" related is nixed. Without Youtube, how exactly do I discover your band? Sure, some **** bands have followed me on twitter and I check them out. But that's one outlet and as far as I know, you guys havent followed me. This isn't the "good old days" where people just listen to the radio endlessly.

My advice? Put on a hell of a show. Sell out at every arena, bar, gig that you have. Just be damn good. I downloaded lots of Blink-182 music through torrents. Just a few days ago I decided I'd buy all their albums to replace the free **** I got. Why? Because they're good and they deserve my monies. Good bands make it, **** bands flop. So just be that good.
User avatar #166 to #122 - bigsteamingpile (01/10/2014) [-]
To be fair, I hope you make it big. If you're truly good I wouldn't want to deprive you of any of my money. Maybe I'll download something of yours illegally here and there but it's your job to MAKE me want to buy it.

Love ya ribs. Don't ever give up and don't ever give in.
#135 to #122 - magerogue (01/10/2014) [-]
I feel ya bro. I'm in a band too, and it's not just pirate bay, torrents didn't even need to exist, because of the internet it's really hard for a band to make profit from an album.
Most musicians nowadays make 90% of their incomes because of live gigs, album sales are the 10% . Youtube is also a big *********** when it comes to selling your product.

There is no such thing as intellectual property.

Just because you're the first to have an idea--often meaning you're the first to take it to the patent office--doesn't mean that you can use the gun of government to forcibly prevent or punish 7,000,000,000+ other people for doing the same thing.
User avatar #167 to #162 - RandomAnonGuy (01/10/2014) [-]
I've seen you around and I think this is the first thing we've ever agreed on, to some extent.
I mean, I can kind of see why copyright exists. It'd suck to be the guy that came up with something only to have some rich guy take your idea and you get squat, and it'd suck for companies to put the funds into researching an idea that their competitors get to use. But it's still ******** .
User avatar #169 to #167 - douthit (01/10/2014) [-]
Yup.

I think the worst aspect of the copyrights that follow from the belief in intellectual property is that big corporations gobble up every patent they can, which gives them no real reason to innovate, but they can instead just sit on their patents. And because of all the red tape and usual government BS, the big guys can afford to buy these patents and fight to keep them in court, while the little guys can't really afford to spend months or years in court or mediation.
