BREIN, a Dutch trade group representing copyright owners, claims to have uncovered documents revealing that Fredrik Neij is CEO of Thepiratebay.org's listed owner.
The official Swedish debt collector rejected entertainment industry claims that Pirate Bay founders have assets in that country.
Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi says film industry's assertion that Pirate Bay founders still control site is a "faulty claim." And if Global Gaming can't find funding, he says, the deal is dead.
As spokesman for The Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi was noted for his sarcastic criticism of copyright owners. He says he wants to write a book, start new projects.
In a letter, trade group says that if Global Gaming acquires The Pirate Bay, it has asked Swedish authorities to order the company to pay the music industry instead of Pirate Bay founders.
Less than two weeks after being hired to obtain legal content for Global Gaming, Wayne Rosso walks away over "strong doubts" about whether a deal can be completed.
The pending sale of the file-sharing site has music industry types looking to collect the $3.6 million damages from a Swedish court case.
