Railroaded into Swedish prison by Big Content

Railroaded into Swedish prison by Big Content, article.
and then a trial that included a judge and multiple jurors who were literally getting paychecks from the large copyright industry associations.

"Big Content", I haven't heard that before, but it's a useful term.
I remember from a pre-Internet book, the main character was offended by the use of the word "content" to refer to the foodstuffs inside tubes or boxes. He said: "at least nobody yet has had the sheer brass balls to refer to artistic creations as 'content'." Well, he didn't have long to wait. Citizen Kane and Hamlet are now officially "content".
