Pirate hunting to become illegal in Sweden

Posted on Friday, June 15 2007 @ 01:05:36 CEST by


FUD Zilla reports a Swedish court ruled it illegal to hunt pirates on the Internet.
Every person in Sweden is given an identity number at birth and this number is used for many things, but no-one is allowed to store these numbers, even though they're used for identification purpose during a purchase and so on.

It has now become illegal to store IP addresses in the same way, although the police and some other authorities in Sweden that works with crime related issues are still allowed to store IP addresses if they think a crime is or has been committed.

The infamous Antipiratybyrån (anti piracy bureau) will no longer be allowed to store IP addresses, although this won't happen until 2008 as the bureau has a special permit to store IP addresses until then.
