Pirate sails off in search iof human rights

One time The Pirate Bay  (TPB) spokesman Peter Sunde has joined fellow TPB founder Fredrik Neij in appealing to the European Court Of Human Rights in a last ditch attempt to avoid custody  for his role in setting up the controversial file-sharing website after being found guilty on copyright infringements charges in Sweden resulting in damages and terms if imprisonment being imposed. In their filing with the human rights court, both men will now rely on the European Convention right to freedom of expression and the right to "receive and impart information" and will argue that by operating The Pirate Bay they were merely exercising that right as well as re-arguing that TPB was just a technology provider which did not get involved in the copying of unlicensed materials, and the technology provided has legitimate uses.
