Founder of Fan-Made Subtitle Site Convicted for Copyright Infringement 

The Attunda District Court sentenced the now 32-year-old operator to probation. In addition, he has to pay 217,000 Swedish Kroner ($27,000), which will be taken from the advertising and donation revenues he collected through the site. While there were millions of subtitles available on Undertexter.se, only 74 movies were referenced by the prosecution. These were carefully selected to ensure a strong case it seems, as many of the titles weren’t commercially available in Sweden at the time. – Ernesto, TorrentFreak http://ift.tt/2fkou5o
