House of 9-year-old Finnish girl raided by antipiracy police for using TPB

How young will the casualties become in the ongoing war against online piracy? You sadly have to wonder, when you learn that a 9-year old girl’s laptop was seized by Finnish police in a raid on her family home, following a complaint by the CIAPC anti-piracy group which had ISPs block The Pirate Bay in Finland. The raid followed a request that the girl’s father pay up around €600 (about US$770) to settle potential piracy charges without prosecution, according to Torrentfreak. The father in the case ignored the requests, which led to police showing up on his door this past Tuesday morning. His daughter appears to have been the culprit behind some illegal download activity, having browsed first Google and then The Pirate Bay looking for pop star Chisu’s latest album. According to the father, that search didn’t surface any usable files, so the two went to a brick-and-mortar retail store the next day and paid cash for the physical album instead.

If there’s anything more ridiculous than the image of a squad of policemen making a 9-year old girl hand over the laptop, consider also that this particular laptop was adorned with images of Winnie the Pooh and crew. And that in parting, police reportedly suggested that next time, the father just hand over the €600 (which can’t help but sound like protection money in this context). The EFF in Finland has taken this as a particularly poignant example of how out-of-hand the anti-piracy measures have gotten in Finland. And the artist involved, Chisu, has spoken out against the action, apologizing to her 9-year old fans and directing them to free streaming content from her albums on Spotify.

    They have no case, people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their children, I may not be familiar with the Finnish laws but I’m sure this is a rule that applies every country in the EU.

    This whole ordeal can be compared to fascism and heck even the Mafia. It’s the same principle that’s driving extortionists and petty criminals, it’s blackmailing and in this case blackmailing a poor little girl, for what end? To get their pockets stuffed? To set an example?

    How about you use your resources to fix your country and it
    s absolutely ridiculous anti-piracy policies.

    In Finland, the police is mostly the guys who liked the army. So they do whatever is told by whomever.
    Anyone (no kidding) can say this or that guy did this.
    They believe, as there is nothing to look after them, this is putting it nicely :)
    Then the court believes too, as the police is what you believe in.
    The Finnish guys who are here putting links, might be able to hack and tell much more. :) )Ïn case police wants me, am using some neighbors wlan, get a car to look for it :) )))
    I got no money though so the people who are after pirates, would not get anything. Sorry. Unemployed for more than seven years now :(

    I agree that it must have been traumatic for the Kid but if you really think of it – there’s absolutely nothing from stopping the Parents using their Kids Laptop to Hide Piracy – she’ll get the Laptop back once their Cyber Unit have checked it.
