Easier to get filesharers' details
The government wants it to be easier for the police and prosecutors to find out personal information about web users from their internet providers.
Currently in Sweden there has to be a crime serious enough to get a prison sentence before the authorities can demand to find out who owns a specific IP-address. Most file-sharing cases normally only lead to fines, and therefore aren't seen as being serious enough, reports Swedish Radio's youth channel P3.
The government parties say the main reason for the possible law change would be to make it easier to prosecute cases of online sexual harassment, libel, and grooming.
