We had previously reported about a 9-year-old's laptop being confiscated by police after she tried pirating some music. The police in Finland have now decided not to press charges against the girl. "We have decided to end the criminal investigation, because CIAPC has waived the penalty claims," police officer Markku Nisula told Finnish news outlet MTV3.




Reportedly, the father has agreed with CIAPC to pay only 300 euros, half of the original amount demanded of him. This means that the now infamous Winnie the Pooh laptop will be returned to the girl.
