Torrent Site Owner’s Privacy Concerns ISP

Torrent Site Owner’s Privacy Concerns ISP

A BitTorrent site SweTorrents is being supported by The Swedish ISP TeliaSonera who previously refused to block “The Pirate Bay”. The court had ordered the ISP to disclose information about identification of the owner of SweTorrents but it refused to do so and even went against the order mentioning that it would be a violation of the European data retention directive law if they would do so and stated that no copyrighted files was ever being hosted by SweTorrents.


Previously, an attempt was made last year by three movie companies when they tried to fetch out personal details of the owner of the SweTorrents BitTorrent tracker.


Then, Sodertorn District Court was asked by the movie companies with an application that was made under the The European Union's Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive (IPRED) law presented earlier that year which states that ISPs can be forced to give copyright holders the personal data of their clients. And for the same the companies asked to make a demand to TeliaSonera to disclose the information about SweTorrents, as according to them the site was violating on their copyrights. The application was to put to have an eye upon the copyright holders & to fetch out that who and from where the copyrights have been violated.

As soon as the IPRED law came in front of everyone then a drastic reduction in Internet traffic was caused by people who were afraid of their personal data reaching the hands of copyright holders, who could then prosecute them in courts. The Vice-Chairman of the Swedish Pirate Party, Christian Engstrom, concluded that “Dealing with illegal file-sharing is a job for the police. It is their job to enforce the law. Now we have given private corporations the legal right to go after our civilians. That's not how Western democracies work. In a study, 80% of people thought we shouldn't go after file-sharers. But ask them how they feel about taking money out of the pockets of musicians, authors or artists and that number falls by a significant amount. Ultimately we have to change people's perception on file-sharing.”

The TeliaSonera joined with the local anti-piracy outfit “ Antipiratbyran” when Sodertorn District Court ruled in favour of the movie companies and gave an order to TeliaSonera to swap all the requested information to Antipiratbyran. But the same thing turned to be violating the piracy of one of its customers that made them to decide an appeal about the decision.


The appeal made by ISP was about an argument that “IPRED is in direct violation of the EU’s data retention directive, under which the privacy of the SweTorrents owner would be protected.”

Patrick Hiselius, TeliaSonera’s lawyer stated that the order applies to this case even though it hasn’t yet been implemented by the Swedish government. “The protection of privacy contained in the directive prevents the application of the Swedish IPRED law in this case,” he added.

According to ISP, they noted that the things that’s ruled by the District Court was about “the material that is uploaded on the website,” even though there is no copyright material on SweTorrents, only torrent links. And it seems that the Court’s ruling is “based on faulty technical knowledge.”

If the appeal made comes up in favor of TeliaSonera, then they would get a success in crushing the IPRED law very hard and a massive whammy thing would arise for the anti-piracy outfits who wasted their time and money to let the IPRED law be passed.

SnakeyB avatarThanks emuworld. I will wait and see if TeliaSonera wins the appeal before I start dancing in the streets. Either way the longer it stays in court the longer we are left with some rights.

JohnSatan avatarI believe that up here in Canada, we are legally allowed to download files, we are just not allowed to share files.
