The Pirate Bay founder Twitters from file sharing trial

Peter Kolmisoppi says the accused are 'winning' but trial is 'boring'

Peter Sunde Kolmsioppi, one of the founders of file-sharing website The Pirate Bay, who is on trial accused of copyright theft in Sweden, is Twittering live from the trial.

Kolmsioppi, along with Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg and Carl Lundstorm, are being prosecuted by media companies including Sony and Warner Bros, and could face a fine of $143,500 (£100,700) and up to two years in prison if found guilty.

However, Kolmsioppi does not seem rattled by the trial, writing that he thinks that it is "boring" - and claiming that the defence is winning the case.

The prosecution has had to drop around 50 per cent of its charges due to shortcomings in evidence, reports Torrentfreak.com.

"EPIC WINNING LOL" Kolmsioppi wrote in one Tweet earlier today (February 17), later writing that the trial was "so boring. It's sleepy".

Yesterday (February 16) he mocked to prosecution, Tweeting, "The prosecutors have a problem distinguishing from megabits and megabytes", and after posting the message, writing: "How the hell did they think this was going to be something else than EPIC FAIL for the prosecution?"
