Regardless of numerous debates, Norway finally decided to enforce its new anti-piracy legislation. For file-sharers it means that the measures taken against their downloading habits will get much tougher. As for portal administrators, it means that at least some of their sites will likely get blocked by the Internet service providers.
Since an ex-US spy agency contractor Snowden forced debates by leaking top secret data over the monitoring and surveillance practices of the American and UK governments, privacy and online freedom have quickly become the central focus of the worldwide press.
Apparently, the harmful effects of unauthorized file-sharing have become the perfect justification for monitoring. One can only guess what forms this monitoring will take in the future, but some can mathematically point to as part of a larger plan. Speaking of the Norway’s anti-piracy legislation, it should be mentioned that the country’s Internet subscribers will be subjected to monitoring by rights owners in the name of IP protection since today.
The recently enforced law allows rights owners to request the permission of the local authorities to scan file-sharing portals for unauthorized downloading activities. In addition, under the new legislation, harvested IP addresses can be connected to real-life identities after court ruling and the assistance of Internet service providers. The broadband providers are supposed to have a major role in the enforcement of the new legislation, because legal requests will force them block file-sharing portals. Thus far, lots of voices point to Telenor as the first Internet service provider to receive such a request against the resilient Pirate Bay.
