The world biggest indexation site for BitTorrent contents, ThePirateBay.org, would consider itself totally immune from actions from copyright holders associations (like the American RIAA and MPAA) because of its geographical location in Sweeden. As a matter of fact, in this Scandinavian country indexing contents (showing where to find them and not providing them by yourself) seems to be fully exempt from risk of being accused of data pirate activity. There were years that the owners of this web site were even having fun at the menacing, and often barely legal, letters they received from many people and companies.
Today, in the morning, the Swedish police raided the place and the server host of ThePirateBay.org and seized all computers. The web site is no longer accessible while police is investigating whether or not they contain objectionable or illegal data (illegal according to the Swedish law). For now, nobody is really sure of the outcome, even the police did not want to take any position, and some local lawyers think that ThePirateBay.org should come out clean.
