Any details of the evidence used to prove it was his computer used? static ip address? logs?
I would have thought that someone with as much knowhow as Warg would know how to hide the sources of this information.
Was always curious about this case.
Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg has been found guilty of hacking in Sweden and sentenced to two years' imprisonment. Warg, 28, was found guilty of breaking into the Swedish arm of IT services firm Logica before publishing the personal data of thousands of people, as well as hacking into Nordea (Scandinavia’s biggest …
I guess it would also be good to know how well the jury was educated with regards to the technical nature of the case.
Whilst the defence/prosecution will have plenty of technical witnesses to bring out before the jury, it would be rather confusing for them.
Given that the only people with a real technical grasp of what is being said are the technical witnesses, this would have been a nightmare to be involved with...
"I guess it would also be good to know how well the jury was educated with regards to the technical nature of the case."
"IT Educated" people are the last people you want on a jury, if you're being tried for IT related crimes. The problem is that lots of technical people come with preconceptions. Many IT people, in particular, think they know everything about IT and massively misjudge their own knowledge. You need to have jury members who are non-specialist in the area and good expert witnesses for both defence and prosecution.

i guess we are expected to take off work and appear in the courtroom with a pen, pad, fedora and overcoat just to get some basic details? my ignorant opinion is that he either got lazy/high/subconsciencely wanted to get caught or the prosecution is lying/case is fabricated but it would be nice if these "news" stories would include this sort of critical info. guess i'm supposed to learn swedish too? i bet there's all kinds of juicy details in that win phone article but i won't click on that POS.

Maybe it's just because he doesn't know how to inuslt people? I mean he used a$$hole 3 times at least. What about some other insults? The twat? Git? Cunt? Fucker? Douchebag? retard? Rapscallion? Spaniards Codpiece?
I wish people were more inventive with their insults.
Maybe it has to do with libel/slander law from some standpoint or understanding of the law. "Your honor, I called him an A two-dollar hole with an additional dollar, I didn't dream of calling the gentlemen assholes"
In the US anyway, you can call someone an asshole, fucker, or a dickhead no problem. You start running into trouble when you call someone a dumbass, fraud or fake. I have no clue why that guy/girl/AI-like-thing used dollar signs though.
Trying to preserve one's self-image as one who doesn't swear on the web possibly? Faulty programming? Broken s key?
