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.

    For some strange reason you chose to post this to me, multiple times. I don't hide any messages, regardless of score. So, at least insofar as myself, apparently the intended reader, moderation will have no effect on me seeing your comment.

    I'm not ignoring it because I don't see it, I'm ignoring it because it seems senseless and off-topic.
