A 28-year-old man has been fined 4.3 million Swedish krona - just over £400,000 - for uploading one film to a torrent-sharing website. Anti-piracy group Rights Alliance described him as Sweden's "worst ever" pirate.
He was also given a suspended jail sentence and 160 hours of community service for uploading 517 other titles.
Copyright reformists criticised the ruling, and said legislation was "outdated".

The Swedish Pirate Party told was quoted as saying that "the only way forward is a radical reform of copyright law that allows for the sharing of culture".

In line with typical practice in Sweden, the court requested that media did not publish the man's name.

The worst pirate in Sweden sounds a bit dramatic to me but then the so called creative industries are well known for being creative when it comes to valuing the fodder they deliver, this guy will simply declare himself bankrupt I suspect, you cant get blood out of a stone.
