Movie Subtitle Site Operator Faces Prison in Sweden

Undertexter.se is a website that hosted fan-made translated movie subtitles. Police raided it three years ago, and its operator has been prosecuted in Sweden. The prosecutor says that the crimes committed are worthy of imprisonment.

It is not a secret that running a portal that offers or merely links to pirated content can be a warm work, as it attracts the attention of the rights owners, law enforcement authorities and even governments. But for some reason, a website creating and distributing its own content online for free is also considered a crime in Sweden, as shown in the case featuring fan-populated subtitling site Undertexter.se.

Undertexter has been providing a useful service for nearly a decade, as Sweden faced with a dearth of subtitling in local language. The site members created their own translated subtitles for movies and TV shows and made them available to public. But three years ago, police raided the site and seized its servers, supposedly under pressure from Hollywood.

The site founder claimed their own interpretation of dialog is not illegal, especially when it is handing out for free. However, the authorities disagreed, the founder was arrested and eventually prosecuted for distributing infringing subtitles. Instead of tackling all of the subtitles on Undertexter, the prosecution has hand-picked a few dozen that represent the strongest case, i.e. those related to movies that weren’t commercially available in the country at the time. The underlying suggestion is that the subtitle creators carried out their translation work from pirate copies available online.

In response, the site operator doesn’t deny that he made some money from his activities, largely through on-site advertising. However, he insists that offering fan-created subtitles is not a crime.

analogkid6103 avatarIm sure they will throw the book(rights of book held by copyright holder) at this guy.
How dare he help people to understand video and shows not in their own language. The copyright guys are the worst.Not even worldwide political upheaval can get rid of them. Why? Cause they play both sides. A most formidable enemy. Don't believe it? Check out Catch 22 and be disgusted and informed. Cockroaches will be easier to be rid of.
