From the movie "Good Copy/Bad Copy" I found the statement by one of the Swedish pirates to be most disconcerting. He stated that he did not have to follow the copyright laws of America. So I suppose in his mind that stealing and profiting from the work of others is OK. I was also surprised that his bogus company was able to be back up and running in three days. This seems to demonstrate that the Swedish government has little power to regulate copyright in their country.
Stealing from others is wrong no matter what country you live in.
