Attention Swedish Pirate Bay Users, Copyright Trolls Have Arrived

I like how these guys compare what they are doing to the use of speed cameras. The part that they are leaving out is that they are not law enforcement, they have no idea who is actually sharing files and have no authority to demand fines from anyone.

"One can compare it to a speed camera. In the same way that a speed camera only records those who drive too fast, only those Internet users who share copyrighted material without permission are logged," says spokesman Gordon Odenbark. Initially, the group says it will target between 500 and 1,000 file-sharers and each will be asked to settle for around $233 (2,000 kronor).
