- Sweden currently has 'Antipiratbyrån' that tracks IP's to users.
- Several users have been found guilty.
- + pirate bay issue and a few others.
- In Denmark they have some of the toughest laws when it comes to tracking users and punishment of these 3 countries. Heavy DNS blocking abuse.
- Denmark also lets the copywrong lobby access the person registered to an IP:
- There are more.
- In Norway, so far only 1 convicion, and that was for a Norwegian film, Max Manus. http://translate.google.no/translate?hl=no&sl=no&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fsimnews.no%2Fimmaterielle_rettigheter%2Fmax-manus-saken-et-gjennombrudd-i-kampen-mot-rettighetsbrudd-pa-nettet%2F2010%2F
- They later got their access to look up the people behind an IP revoked. I currently do not know of any other case, and private interests are NOT allowed to look up the person behind an IP, and police will not do it either.
- There is currently a suggestion to change the laws suggested to allow private investigators to look this up, and further criminalize pirating. We're fighting it. (Same shit as SOPA/PIPA basically). DNS blocking exists, but not abused as far as I know.
- As you can see, the Norwegians so far have the least oppressive and aggressive laws when it comes to how to chase/identify and chase people in court. And yet, we are having the largest increase in people willing to pay for products.
