wiredmikey (1824622) writes "The co-founder of The Pirate Bay filesharing website, which makes it possible to skirt copyright fees and share music, film and computer game files using bit torrent technology, was on detained in Sweden on Friday, days after his deportation from Cambodia, officials said. Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, 27, faces a one-year prison sentence for promoting copyright infringement in his home country.

Warg was handed a one-year prison sentence by a Swedish court in 2009 for promoting copyright infringement but failed to show up to serve his term at the start of this year. Warg was arrested in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh on August 30 at Stockholm's behest and expelled late on Monday."
