Sweden's not a U.S. state?

When copyright protection gets automatic, mistakes get made.

These are the perils of automatic copyright protection plans. Apparently Dreamworks sent a note to a Swedish BitTorrent tracker site asking that its content be removed, citing the American Digital Millenium Copyright Act. The site responded (warning: profanity involved) with the following:

"As you may or may not be aware, Sweden is not a state in the United States of America. Sweden is a country in northern Europe. ... US law does not apply here. For your information, no Swedish law is being violated."

Thanks to Broadband Reports for the link.
