Dutch Usenet Providers Ordered to Expose Pirates

Usenet providers Eweka and Usenetter received a court order to hand over the personal information of two uploaders who shared over 2,000 pirated e-books. Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN, which is going to offer a settlement to the accused file-sharers, filed the lawsuit on behalf of several large book publishers, where it had requested the personal details of two members who allegedly uploaded over 2,000 books to newsgroups.

In response, Eweka and Usenetter terminated the accounts but refused to hand over any personal details, explaining that they are not allowed to share personal data if an account is no longer active. However, BREIN took the matter to court, saying that the book publishers’ right to protect their content outweighs the privacy concerns of the Usenet uploaders in this case. The court sided with the anti-piracy group and required providers to hand over the IP-addresses, payment info, and any other personal details they have. If Eweka and Usenetter fail to comply, they face a penalty of 1,000 euros per day.

BREIN explained that it was hoping to recover damages and receive information on other large-scale infringers from the uploaders. In the Netherlands, Internet service providers can be obliged to hand over personal details of their subscribers in case of infringing activity and if the aggrieved party has a legitimate interest. This means that BREIN could try to request personal details of BitTorrent uploaders from their ISPs.

BREIN continue to pursue serial e-book infringers – for example, back in 2015, a Dutch court ordered Google to hand over information of a user who sold pirated books in the Play Store.

Solcis avatarPfizer: doesn't matter if they used their real IP or a VPN. Most Usenet providers require payment in Euros or Dollars with no Bitcoin option. And those are fully traceable and identifiable. Hopefully other Usenet providers will learn from this and allow for payment in Bitcoin. That will protect both the providers and the users from liability.
