The Pirate Bay looks set to come under attack from the Swedish Maritime Administration after a police report was filed against the popular file-sharing website earlier this month.
This all came about after the Swedish Maritime's navigation programme - The Living Sea Map
- appeared on The Pirate Bay.
In the letter of complaint dated June 16th, the Maritime Administration told the police that the programme had been downloaded from The Pirate Bay nearly 2500 times.
The software costs around £75, meaning that the total value of illegally downloaded copies of The Living Sea Map
was over £185,000 (2.5 million Swedish kronor).
The Living Sea Map
is a popular GPS-linked mapping programme designed for small boats, providing maps of Swedish waters and information about Swedish harbours. Read more here
