It says his lawyer told DN.The verdict, which was announced on Tuesday last week, means that the domain names thepiratebay.se and piratebay.se be seized and owned by the state. This then the prosecutor has made those crimes utensils used for copyright infringement via the famous file-sharing site.Now announces Fredrik Neij through his lawyer Jonas Nilsson that he will appeal the verdict.- The district court makes an erroneous assessment of how to look at a domain name. We believe it is an address assignment, not an estate, says Jonas Nilsson.Fredrik Neij denies both that he is still working with The Pirate Bay, and that he would be the actual owner of the domain names. A search of records shows a different name, the ownership, but the prosecutor says that he is the one who effectively control address.- The prosecution has alleged two things. One is that it committed crimes via The Pirate Bay. There are Fredrik Neij really no views on. The second is that he is involved in The Pirate Bay operation, says Jonas Nilsson.According to him, it's not about that Fredrik Neij want to get back the domain name, but about the principle behind the District Court's judgment is wrong.Fredrik Neij is one of The Pirate Bay's founders and is one of the four who were sentenced for their involvement in the site. In November last year he was arrested on the border between Laos and Thailand. He is currently serving his fängelstraff in Sweden.The case is unique in Sweden, as it is the first time a domain name to be transferred into state ownership. Previously, persons convicted of crimes have lost their domains, but then they have only been allowed to decay and over time become available again, in the same way as if the owner had forgotten to pay the bill.
