A PIRATE IN THE COURTROOM
Via Boing Boing comes this info-age definition of chutzpah: one of the owners of P2P site The Pirate Bay, currently on trial in Stockholm for “complicity to making copyrighted material accessible,” fixed a server problem on the site remotely from the courtroom by using his laptop while his lawyer was making arguments.
From the post:
Thepiratebay.org was down during the best part of Monday, which had a good deal of file-sharing folks worried that the website might be down for good this time. Thankfully for them, he had his trusty laptop at hand and could restart the server remotely, so that eager fileswappers could get back inside.
-We have Internet access [in the court room] so it was no problem, Neij told Expressen today (Tuesday);
-Besides, I’m keeping up with the coverage of the trial.
