Police in Helsinki seized the laptop of a young girl during a search of her family’s home last week, according to her father. The alleged offense? Using the popular BitTorrent website The Pirate Bay to download a single album.

Last year, 9-year-old Julietta came across a torrent on The Pirate Bay after searching on Google for Finnish pop star Chisu’s latest album. The download failed to work, and she and her father went and bought the album together shortly afterwards. Unbeknownst to them, Finland’s Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Centre (known as CIAPC, as well as its Finnish acronym, TTVK) had already taken notice.

The events are related by the girl’s father, Aki Wequ Nylund, in a public Facebook post. (Though Google Translate’s Finnish is not very good, an account of the translated story was posted at copyright and BitTorrent news blog TorrentFreak.)

This spring, a letter arrived from the TTVK alleging that the Nylund’s account had been linked to a copyright infringement. The letter gave the option to pay a settlement of €600 and sign a non-disclosure agreement — a common tactic used by copyright holders that removes the need for formal charges.
