Second judge removed from Pirate Bay appeal


What is it with Swedish judges and their obsession with the Swedish Copyright Association and the Swedish Association for the Protection of Industrial Property? It turns out that her honour in charge of the Pirate Bay after-trial to decide whether the first hearing was presided over by a biased judge has been removed for, yes, you guessed it, bias. Nice.

Judge Ulrika Ihrfelt was relieved of her position on Wednesday and despite this further set-back and level of ridiculousness, the appellate court’s president, Fredrik Wersall, said the case would be sorted “in a few weeks at the maximum” – provided they can find someone with now preconceptions on copyright infringement presumably.
