Software Firm Buys Swedish File-Sharing Site; New York Times, 6/30/09

AP via New York Times; Software Firm Buys Swedish File-Sharing Site:

"The Pirate Bay is one of the world’s largest file-sharing venues with more than 20 million users worldwide. In April, four men connected with the site were sentenced to one-year prison sentences for violations of copyright law.

A Swedish court found that the four had helped millions of people download copyright-protected material like films, music and computer games.

While the Pirate Bay doesn’t host copyright-protected material, it directs users to content such as films, music and computer games through so-called torrent files.

Global Gaming Factory X said it intended to start a new business model that will make it possible to compensate both content operators and copyright owners."
