It was only a matter of time. Former Pirate Bay operator Peter Sunde is out of prison a free man. Sunde, along with his fellow operators Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm and Carl Lundström, were all sentenced to one year in prison following their convictions for copyright violations they enabled via their bit torrent search site. Prior to Sunde\'s trial, he had been a fugitive of the law for two years. In the end, he was not compelled to serve out the full 12 month sentence and was released after five months.

Sunde is now taking time to reunite with his family, just like Bruce thought he would. He also said that the prison system did not allow him to maintain his Vegan diet. The first meal he enjoyed after getting being released was a breakfast meal of soy yoghurt and muesli. It is a typical Swedish breakfast to eat cereal with plain yoghurt or vanilla flavored yoghurt. It appears that he maintained a healthy attitude while incarcerated, but the toll the experience took on his physically and mentally is visible.

Upon becoming a free man, he stated that his mind and body were once again reunited. He is excited about his prospects for the future. He intends on being an activist, but will do things legitimately. He does not want to do achieve his goals in any way that would compromise his ideals. He will also continue to work on internet-based development projects. During his time on the run and in prison, he has maintained a loyal base of supporters.
