TrueSatan (1709878) writes "Pirate bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm is set to be released from solitary confinement but is still to serve the remainder of a 1 year sentence relating to Pirate Bay activities. 5 months remain of that sentence and they are to be served in a normal prison with far less restrictions on his confinement...assuming no new charges are brought against him.
He had been accused of involvement in the hacking of Swedish IT firm Logica but no charges have been substantiated in this case. He was later implicated in a second case but, once more, no charges have been substantiated against him http://torrentfreak.com/pirate-bay-founder-arrested-again-on-suspicion-of-new-hacking-fraud-offenses-121110/ . Given that his solitary confinement has not resulted, thus far, in additional charges and that it is far and above the intended sentence in the original case one might have thought that some reduction in sentence or other leniency was more than his due but this doesn't appear to be forthcoming."
