Dear Sirs

Further to your response below, you should be aware that your misuse of the FOOTBALL MANAGER trade mark in relation to your services constitutes an infringement in the UK, irrespective of Swedish law and whether or not you are based in Sweden, not least because your â^À^Øthepiratebay.orgâ^À^Ù website is targeting users in the UK (as evidenced by the fact that a substantial number of UK users have already used your services to download this game in the UK). This gives a cause of action and jurisdiction to sue you in the UK. Our client would then proceed to enforce the UK judgement against you in Sweden.

In the circumstances, we repeat our request once more that you immediately remove the link complained of and confirm that there will be no further misuse of the FOOTBALL MANAGER trade mark in relation to your services.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully.

Dear Prokaryote(s),

Please sue me in Japan instead. I’ve always wanted to visit Tokyo.
Also, I’m running out of toilet paper, so please send lots of legal documents
to our ISP – preferably printed on soft paper.
No, but seriously. That’s simply not how international law enforcement
works. Using the same logic, a country where web sites are forbidden could
press charges against you for having one.
