ONE OF THE FOUNDERS of The Pirate Bay has had his prison sentence for a hacking conviction halved.
Gottfrid Svartholm, or Anakata, was arrested in Cambodia in September 2012and accused of hacking by the Swedish government.
In May he went to court on charges that he had hacked Swedish IT company Logica and bank Nordea.
In June he was convicted of hacking and fraud and given a two year prison sentence. He appealed, and the sentence was halved.
According to the Torrentfreak news website, the Swedish court of Appeal upheld his conviction with respect to Logica, but overturned the verdict on the Nordea bank charges.
