Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, the Swedish co-founder of the Pirate Bay file-sharing has been arrested in Cambodia, where the authorities are considering an extradition request over copyright laws.
Warg, 27, who has been living in Cambodia for several years, was originally sentenced to 12 months jail by the Swedish authorities in 2009.
"We had a request from Sweden to make an arrest as he had committed cybercrime there. We don't have an extradition treaty with Sweden but there are other ways to do it, police spokesman Kirth Chantharith told Reuters.
Warg's arrest was originally reported in Cambodian website, Khmer440.com
UK ISPs began blocking The Pirate Bay this summer. In June BT followed TalkTalk, Virgin Media, Sky Broadband, Everything Everywhere, BE and O2, which banned access to the popular file-sharing site in response to the court order made in April.
