Funny or sad? I could get a lesser sentence for manslaughter then they got for 'copy infringement'.

I vote for "sad".

Being Michael Jackson gets you 0 years in prison for allegedly having sex with little boys.

True, but he is a rank amateur when it comes to the pedo business, behind the virginity rape clinics that catholic priests run. Very few have done jailtime for the tens of thousands of rapes they have committed.

Here's hoping that they don't end up doing any jail time! They are the true heroes of the internet!

They may end up not serving any time at all:

Today’s news doesn’t necessarily means that the defendants will have to go to prison. It is common in the Swedish justice system to deduct 12 months from any prison sentence on cases over 5 years old. Since the case in question meets that criteria the Pirate Bay defendants would qualify, but the decision lies with the court.

Remember downloading Micheal Jackson albums can get your 5 years in prison as well as a hefty fine.

Killing Micheal Jackson gets you 4 years in prison with the possibility of house arrest later on.
