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.

    No, it is more like someone modifying the whips for left handed people and the buggy and whip folks getting pissed about it.

    Let's see... The OP wrote:

    The vested interests aren't forcing people to buy whips. Rather, the upstarts are stealing buggies and re-painting them.

    Now, let's replace "buggy" with "whips":

    The vested interests aren't forcing people to buy whips. Rather, the upstarts are stealing whips and re-jiggering them.

    Yup. You haven't rebutted the OP; you haven't put forward a new point; you haven't changed the argument.
