illegal file sharing

Pirate Hunters Rebuffed

Published tisdag 13 oktober 2009 kl 14.15

Sweden's new anti-file sharing law took a major blow on Tuesday when the Svea Court of Appeal ruled that internet provider Ephone does not have to hand over details of its web users to companies who suspect that illegal file sharing has taken place.

This overturns the decision in June by Solna district court which had told Ephone to give users' details to five book publishers who suspect that 27 of their audio books had been made available for illegal downloading

The appeal court narrowly decided that the audio books had not been made sufficiently widely available to justify any detailed investigation of Epiphone's records. Bo Wigstrand, head of the internet company, claims that the only people who can be shown to have broken into the server is the Anti-Pirate Bureau itself.
