Norway Fights against Online Piracy

As you know, the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay keeps moving its domain name across the countries in attempts to find a safe harbor. In the meanwhile, Norway prepares a plan to kill the website. Amendments to the local Copyright Act suggest site blocking and allow copyright owners to spy and pursue file-sharers. Last week, the proposed modifications were approved by the Norway’s Parliament.

The country’s stance on file-sharing has been put under pressure since 2009, when the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry with some of the local movie studios asked Telenor (the country’s biggest ISP) to block access to TPB. The broadband provider refused, claiming that there was no legal basis for that. In result, a lawsuit was launched, but Telenor won it. In 2010, copyright owners filed an appeal, which was also rejected.

It became clear that a change in the Copyright Law was needed. This is why two years ago the Ministry of Culture announced the new proposals, and now the Norway’s Parliament reviewed them. The Labor Progress Party, Socialist Left Party, Christian Democrats, and Conservatives approved the bill, with the only “no” coming from the opposition.

The modifications in question aimed to pin-point and prosecute not only people facilitating copyright violation, but also those who share copyrighted material without consent from copyright owners. As a result, copyright holder can force ISPs to “prevent or impede access” to portals making available illegal content.

The modifications say that in case the owner is unknown or has an undisclosed address, the case can be decided without him being given an opportunity to comment. In the meanwhile, the end-users will have to face the full extent of the modified Copyright Act with no regard for the local data protection legislation.

Jens Christian Koller of the Parliamentary Information Service explained that the amendments are still to pass another review of the Parliament before they are formally adopted. He said that in practice therefore such amendments to the Copyright Act have been adopted, but it’s still not correct to claim that it has already been formally adopted by the Parliament. Unfortunately, it is now very difficult to stop this legislation.
