IFPI Abandons Trying to Block The Pirate Bay in Norway

IFPI Abandons Trying to Block The Pirate Bay in Norway

After 2 failed attempts at forcing Norwegian ISP to block the most infamous torrent website in the world, music performing rights group TONO and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) have given up their joint legal action. They announced that the case won’t be now sent to the Supreme Court. Instead, the entertainment rights outfits are pinning their hopes on revising the present legislation.

A year ago the IFPI in cooperation with some local movie studios started to threaten the Norway’s largest ISP Telenor. They demanded it to block its users from accessing website The Pirate Bay, otherwise posing a threat to take legal action in order to get the courts to force Telenor.


ISP refused to comply with the demand and was consequently taken to court. The verdict was announced in last November – the courts ruled that Telenor was not obliged to block The Pirate Bay.

However, Marte Thorsby, CEO of the IFPI wasn’t going to give up so easily, keeping insisting that verdict of the court was incorrect. TONO agreed and confirmed the appeal.

Nevertheless, the Borgarting Court of Appeal ruled a month ago that their appeal had been rejected because of absence of any basis under law of Norway for that claim.

Entertainment rights groups declared they would consider options deciding whether they would take the appeal to the Norway’s highest court or not.

Surprisingly, couple days ago TONO and IFPI announced they would not take their case to the Supreme Court. As TONO explained, they wanted to have a legal clarification of Norwegian law being impossible to force ISPs to block access to the website. Now they’ve got two clear decisions that there’s no possibility under Norway’s law for blocking requirements. According to November ruling, they assumed that probably authorities hadn’t implemented the EU Copyright Directive duly 5 years ago. So they can interpret these decisions as raising the questions about adequate implementation of EU Copyright Directive in Norwegian law.

CEO of the IFPI Marte Thorsby also agreed that continuation of legal action was just a waste of money and time, and therefore joined performing outfit TONO in calls for clearer law, expecting that the future Copyright Act revision would close such legal ‘hole’.
