Carl Lundström disputes appeals verdict

Crispbread heir and erstwhile neo-Nazi Carl Lundström is heading to the Supreme Court in Sweden to dispute the sentence and damages award meted out to him in The Pirate Bay appeals verdict last month.

Lundström, who is one of the four defendants in The Pirate Bay trial, had his lawyer Per E Samuelsson confirm, on Sveriges Radio this morning, that his client would appeal the sentence handed down to him, reports The Local.

The Svea Court of Appeal reduced Lundström's sentence to four months, but at the same time jacked up the combined fine against the TPB men to 46m kronor.

After the verdict was confirmed, The Pirate Bay's mouthpiece, Peter Sunde, AKA BrokeP, said the men would take the case to Sweden's Supreme Court.

So Samuelsson's confirmation that Lundström was appealing the latest ruling hardly comes as a surprise.

In April 2009 The Pirate Bay four – Sunde, Lundström, Fredrik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm Warg – were handed one-year prison sentences and hefty fines for their involvement in the running of the infamous BitTorrent tracker site.

They finally saw their case reach the appeals court in September this year, however the verdict went against them in late November.

During the proceedings, officials at the appeal court in Stockholm confirmed that a separate hearing would take place for Svartholm Warg because he was absent from the court due to ill health. ®
