We reported recently that the Finnish authorities had confiscated the laptop of a 9-year old girl over piracy charges. The move led to widespread criticism and has now forced CIAPC to drop charges against the girl and her father.


Piracy

CIAPC had originally alleged that the girl had downloaded copyrighted content illegally on her laptop. By tracking the IP address, CIAPC was able to trace her exact location and then sent a letter to her father, asking him to pay 600 euros as a fine and sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The girl’s father refused. Soon after, a police raid was used to ravage their house and find the culprit – a Winnie The Pooh laptop. The artist whose songs the girl was accused of stealing publicly denounced the move by CIAPC and stated that she didn’t want the girl or her father to pay anything for having downloaded the content illegally.

In face of the mounting public pressure and the fact that the girl, even if she had committed the crime, was only 9-years old, CIAPC was forced to drop charges against her entirely. Investigators have now stated that they are shuttering the case since CIAPC no longer wishes to pursue it.

CIAPC’s officials cited that it was possible some kind of malicious malware was accessing the girl’s laptop and that it may have perpetuated the criminal activity for which the girl was mistakenly charged. Nonetheless, it is good to see that CIAPC has realized its mistake and decided to forego any piracy charges against her.
