Four men who run one of the most popular file-sharing sites in the world have been charged with conspiracy to break copyright law in Sweden.
The Pirate Bay's servers do not store copyrighted material but offer links to the download location of films, TV programmes, albums and software.
The website is said to have between 10 and 15 million users around the world and is supported by online advertising.
