Thankfully, police in Finland have agreed to end their criminal investigation of a nine-year-old girl over piracy allegations. But that doesn’t mean her family will get away scot-free because TorrentFreak is reporting that her father Aki Nylund has had to fork over €300 to get the Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Centre (CIAPC) to drop the case. And Nylund wasn’t at all happy about having to pay the fine either — per TorrentFreak, he said that having CIAPC hound him was like having “people from the mafia demanding money at the door.” The good news, however, is that his daughter will soon get her confiscated “Winnie the Pooh” laptop returned to her just in time for Christmas.
