Three founders of the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker (The Pirate Bay) – Peter Sunde, Gottfrid Svartholm, and Fredrik Neik, charged and convicted three years ago for copyright violation, will execute their sentence in different locations across Sweden. Of course, they are going to appeal the court decision.

A couple days ago Carl Lundström also received the notification, saying that he’s eligible to execute a four month sentence in the community. Like other three co-founders of The Pirate Bay, Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde and Gottfrid Svartholm, Lundström was also found responsible for copyright violation in The Pirate Bay’s case. Now each of them is bound to execute the sentence to separate prison spread around the territory of the country.

Neij (TiAMO), Sunde (brokep) and Svartholm (Anakata) are expected to be executing their sentences in 3 separate prisons of the second category. Chief Officer of Probation responsible for their sentence claimed that they had 3 levels of security and decided to put TPB founders in institutions with normal security. For example, Fredrik Neij will have to spend ten months in Kriseberg prison in Malmö, while Gottfrid Svartholm is scheduled to serve a year sentence in Mariefried, which is around 65 km away from Stockholm.

The speculations are that Svartholm may as well be considered dead, because his particular location remains unknown. As for a spokesperson for The Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, he is eligible of executing an eight months sentence in Västervik Norra. Nevertheless, his lawyer promised to file an appeal in the following months. They aren’t going into it right now, but promised it would come in the spring. Perhaps, Peter Sunde won’t have to sit out the sentence at all.

Aside from prison time, the TPB co-founders are likely to pay about $6,78 million in damages. In frames of the investigation, the police found out some cash belonging to Lundström, but didn’t find any valuable assets for the others.

Meanwhile, the representatives of the famous The Pirate Bay declare that two things will happen from now on: first of all, Hollywood and the IFPI can kiss their hopes of getting any money goodbye, and secondly, The Pirate Bay will keep on operating regardless of the outcome of this fiasco.
