Sweden Anti-Piracy Legislation Made It Harder to Fight P2P

Sweden Anti-Piracy Legislation Made It Harder to Fight P2P

Wikileaks published cable proving that Swedish anti-piracy law “might be doing little to solve the problem of unauthorized file-sharing”, because many users switched to using VPN services and other tools enabling them to hide their IP addresses.

Almost 2 years ago the Swedish government passed a law based on the European Union’s Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive (IPRED). Now, thanks to WikiLeaks, the world can know the government’s opinion on the law’s effectiveness.

The law was actually intended to make it easier for authorities to pursue unauthorized file-sharers, lifting the demand that they can only go after those who have committed quite severe crimes. In other words, the target of the police can only be those file-sharers who merit at least two years of jail time. However, it turned out that the Swedish police, on the opposite, complained that the new law has made their job more difficult.

The cable, released by Wikileaks, reveals that the country’s Police Enforcement officials were complaining that introduction of the new anti-piracy legislation has made it more difficult to address crimes, because the country’s ISPs are now keeping user data related to IP-numbers for a shorter period of time under the IPRED. The broadband providers are believed to do that in order to minimize their subscribers’ exposure to copyright violation claims.

Meanwhile, the best unintended consequence of the law turned out to be that many users started to mask their IP addresses in order to avoid the scrutiny of the police. Nowadays there are lots of services enabling users to hide their IP-addresses, and everyone can find information on them on the Internet. It’s worth mentioning that shortly after the law took effect, the Swedish BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay introduced the so-called “IPREDator VPN service”, which provided the users with the ability to hide a subscriber’s IP address for a little less than $7 a month. There’s no need to say that the service has been largely popular.

Earlier this year it has already been mentioned that despite the introduction of IPRED legislation, Swedish file-sharing is currently on the rise. The statistics prove that fact – so far there are just 3 people targeted instead of the anticipated 800. Actually, the Wikileaks cable only proved the fact that file-sharers will always evolve and find a way out.

menahunie avatareven when you use vpn anyone watching outside of the data stream only see's encrypted data stream ( no files, names, ect.. ); they would have to intercept it and try to crack the encoded stream.
THAT is wiretapping and a warrant is needed.
