Police Confiscate Nine Year Old Girl's Laptop for P2P File Sharing

By November 22, 2012

Follow me on:

In Finland, some popular P2P file sharing sites like The Pirate Bay are blocked by national service providers due to concerns over sharing of copyright music. Resourceful people with some knowledge of networking can usually find ways around these blocks, even nine year old girl, apparently. A Finnish girl recently found out what can happen to someone who tries downloading popular music from P2P sites like The Pirate Bay: They get their computers confiscated. On Tuesday, police raided the girl's home and took her prized Winnie The Pooh laptop. The moral of the story? Don't mess with the Finnish police!
