    [news=http://www.photomission.com/images/flags/norway.gif]Oslo municipal court sentenced a 36-year-old man from Oppland County for running an illegal file sharing service on the Internet, the first conviction of its type in Norway.

    The court ruled that the man had willingly and knowingly made a significant number of film and music files available for at least 300 people at a time and had violated copyright law, newspaper VG reports.

    The Sandefjord man placed material on his employer's (telecom company NetCom's) server to facilitate transfer. A police raid revealed more than 60,000 pirated film and music files.

    Before the case went to trial representatives for the Norwegian recording industry signaled that they could sue for compensation if a guilty verdict was returned.
