The court in the Belgian town of Mechelse has ruled that the four co-founders of the Pirate Bay file sharing website are not guilty of copyright infringement and electronic communications abuse
Pirate Bay founders Gottfrid Svartholm and Fredrik Neij, former website representative Peter Sunde and website investor Carl Lundström were acquitted on Thursday, reports De Standaard. The court said that the prosecution failed to prove that they were related to the file sharing site in September 2011 and November 2013 – the period under the court’s review.

All of the defendants denied any participation in the activities of the website after its reported sale to Reservella, a Seychelles-based company, in 2006. As the prosecutor could not do anything counter this argument, the case fell apart.


It's a shame that most of the cases that have so far been brought to trail have been decided mainly in the political arena rather than on their actual merits, this judgement at least ensures folks will know they can get a fair trail in Belgium
