IFPI.se is hacked

Question is if it helps or makes a disservice. This is what the site contains, in simple Courier font.


Den hänsynslösa jakt som IFPI, Antipiratbyrån, Warner Bros och alla andra företag med en bricka i spelet bedrivit har nu resulterat i en rättegång där fyra oskyldiga män står åtalade för upphovsrättsintrång.

Det här är en krigsförklaring mot antipiratindustrin och aktörerna bakom den, och vi uppmanar allmänheten till bojkott och lynchning av de ansvariga.
IFPI är bara början. Fortsättning följer.

Which freely translated into English is:


The ruthless hunt that IFPI, Antipiratbyrån, Warner Bros and all the other companies with a foot in the game has now resulted in a trial where four innocent men are charged for copyright infringement.

This is a declaration of war against the antipiracy industry and the agents behind it, and we encourage the public to boycott and lynching of the responsible ones.
IFPI is just the beginning. To be continued.

In the HTML source you find the following commented line twice:

<!– !d.n.g! ludvig werner – monique wadsted – henrik ponten – rasmus ramstad – per sundin !d.n.g! –>

This won’t win sympathy for the pirates, but still it’s a rather equal way of fighting back against those who run this trial at the cost of Swedish tax payers, the justice system and democracy.

“…this is not a trial against The Pirate Bay, it’s a declaration of war on the internet!”

//Marcin de Kaminski, 090216

Internet slår tillbaka.

The message has been taken down by Ifpi’s web administrator and now has the following message:

Välkommen till IFPI Svenska Gruppen
Sidan är tillfälligt tagen ur drift

which in English is

Welcome to IFPI Swedish Group
The page is temporarily taken out of service

Waking up to a message that just when I had gone to bed, ifpi.com and ifpi.org were also down. Though it seems more like Denial of Service to me than a hack. That’s really super-uncool.

Restricting information flow is bad, no matter which “side” you’re on. Except maybe the spread of false information and lies, but Ifpi just don’t really know what they’re talking about. So they’re not lying. Thus they should be spared the humiliation.
