Paul McCartney has labelled last week's Pirate Bay verdict as "fair".
Four men were found guilty by a Swedish court of breaking copyright rules and ordered to repay damages to entertainment companies on 17 April.
The file-sharing website made millions of music and film files available to users for free.
Speaking to the BBC's Greg Mckenzie, McCartney said: "If you get on a bus you've got to pay. And I think it's fair, you should pay your ticket."
