Pirate Bay's Peter Sunde freed early from prison after serving 5 months

Pirate Bay founder Peter Sunde has been released from prison after serving five months of his year-long sentence for copyright infringement.

Peter Sunde has been released from prison early

Sunde, who was arrested in June by Swedish police for copyright violations as a result of files illegally shared by Pirate Bay, was released from prison yesterday (10 November).

On his release Sunde took to Twitter to reflect on his time in prison.

This comes after two of Sunde's Pirate Bay co-founders were picked up by police separately in the last month.

First, Gottfrid Warg was put behind Danish bars for a period of three and a half years for stealing police and social security files.

This was followed last week by the capture of the third founder of Pirate Bay, on-the-run Fredrik 'Tiamo' Neij. He was arrested by police in Thailand in response to a Interpol arrest warrant requesting he serve a one-year sentence in Sweden and pay a £2.4m fine.
