“While ISPs are required by law to provide the police with the owner’s details for a given IP address and time-stamp, currently this is not a requirement for other organisations.” Very similar to Canada, plus we have the Privacy Act to keep the vermin out. Fight on, Swedish ISPs - give these thugs an inch and they’ll take a mile.

sooner or later they will get in

well sweden is one of the most liberla countryes on the face of the earth , hopefully they will have enough sense not to let the big industries to get away with such crap.

Fuck them, we’ll never stop sharing. Piracy will never die and they know it.

“sooner or later they will get in” No. That will depend on how seriously people in that country take their privacy. Here in Canada (and unlike the USA and GB), we take it VERY seriously which is why the CRIA cannot make any inroads here, no matter how they bluster and blow. Our Privacy Act is a VERY powerful shield. Also, our ISPs have already successfully defended the confidentiality of their users against spurious inquiries by private organizations with nefarious agendas. If we can do it, so can Sweden.

Looks like the Swedish IFPI, will import Tanja from Finland to head up the PR progrom, but do not forget, as an EU member, they must follow and/or implement EU directives and rules. As for Canada, once C60 is passed by the local obsequient mob of pollies all in the pay of business interest groups, all Canadians, may as well take a one way trip to “Alcatraz” by the time CRIA, has stripped them of all their money and rights, legally according to this act!

Tanja???

further to my previous post, tanja=tanja karpela, a former lingeriei model elected to finnish parliament and is their current Minister of Culture who co sponsored the new Finnish Copyright Control Act, which in one provision, prohibits any public discussion of all DRM techniques and/or circumvention of same in any form! Alas for all canadian readers, I suggest you obtain a complete copy of the pending C60, for it will certainly open your eyes, of what is to come!
