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.

    What am I missing here?

    Stupidity in the first place with (lawyering) malice coming close behind.
    Common-sense does not apply. Ever. Stop trying to use it, it's a waste of time.
