"Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Carl Lundstrom
and Peter Sunde were found guilty of breaking copyright law and
were sentenced to a year in jail.
"They were also ordered to pay $4.5m (£3m) in damages.
"Record companies welcomed the verdict but the men are to appeal
and Sunde said they would refuse to pay the fine.

verdict as "bizarre.""
