Pirate Bay trial appeal moved to next summer

Pirate Bay trial appeal moved to next summer TheLocal is reporting today that the appeal launched by the founders of the Pirate Bay has been pushed until next summer.
The Svea Court of Appeal in Sweden made the decision today, pushing the trial back from its previous start time of "mid-November." Bias accusations brought against two of the ruling judges forced the move, adds the court.

The Supreme Court will hear the bias cases, but TheLocal says it will likely only have a verdict by February.

If you consider that we originally tried to hold the hearings in August and finally succeeded in getting them booked for November following a number of difficulties, and considering that the Supreme Court will likely issue a ruling in February or March, there is still a possibility that the hearings could take place just before summer,
appeal court judge Ulrika Ihrfelt did note, however.

Ihrfelt, along with appeals court judge Kristina Boutz are the two accused of bias, mainly for their documented ties to anti-piracy and copyright holder trade groups.

The founders of the popular torrent tracker were found guilty in April of being accessories to copyright violation and sentenced to prison.

Torrents are to trackable anyways they need find a new technology really torrents are almost not ment for file sharing they leave to much information to anti-p2p companys.

darkmetal, new technology probably means cost to the user. Most torrent users are too cheap for that. There are news groups. Even those are heavily monitored by anti-piracy groups. However, they have not figured out how to trace yet like they can with torrents. They have to contend with monitoring the search engins and newgroup sites.

www.go-torrent.com/ is even better than any of the other torrent sites out there. I have never seen any of the sites who were more organized and easier to use

Has anyone on hear ever heard of tor? Or what about hub sites? And VPN? Those are 3 technologies to hide your real IP, yet do the things you already love to do.

VPN is a terrible route for anything.
Hub sites can easily be penetrated by anti-piracy groups.
Tor has too many issues to go into here.
