News: Sweden has charged four individuals related to the website The Pirate Bay with copyright infringement. They reportedly are the operators or financiers of the site: Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde and Carl Lundstrom. (More)
Analysis: From the description, The Pirate Bay helps people find movies/songs being shared through BitTorrent by locating the files and providing links to them. I haven’t explored the site myself, but it does sound at least somewhat like Napster. Not sure if it has a centralized index of titles stored on its servers (like Napster did), but it helps to locate unauthorized files of third parties. By the write-up on Wikipedia, The Pirate Bay seems committed to leading a movement for online file sharing and against the traditional copyright approach.
