The founder of a site that provided fan-created subtitles has lost his appeal against a conviction for copyright infringement. In 2017 a Swedish court found that the unauthorized distribution of movie subtitles is a crime, sentencing the then 32-year-old to probation and a fine. The Court of Appeal has now largely upheld that earlier verdict.

    Well, what else would you have us do about the collapse of society?

    Make your contribution felt, do something constructive! I don't know... for example make some Molotov bottles.
