Swedish ISP Deleted IP-Address Logs to Protect Users

Swedish ISP Deleted IP-Address Logs to Protect Users

Bahnhof is still fighting against copyright owners who try to target alleged file-sharers. The ISP has setup its logging policies in such as way that it can refuse requests for IP-address information. Bahnhof suggests that other providers should follow its example.


“Copyright trolling” has been a common thing all over the world in recent years, with file-sharers being threatened with lawsuits, if they refuse to pay a significant settlement fee. First, the copyright owners ask the court for a subpoena to expose the personal details of account holders connected to certain IP-addresses. Some ISPs cooperate with these requests, but not all of them. For example, the privacy-oriented Bahnhof tries to prevent its users from being exposed, tailoring its logging policies to only allow requests made in criminal cases, while refusing the civil claims against BitTorrent users or other alleged file-sharers.

According to the existing law, Swedish Internet service providers are required to store IP-address logs for 6 months. The same law allows the authorities to demand this type of data in criminal cases. Bahnhof has setup a database of logs kept for the minimal required period that can be accessed for criminal cases only. At the same time, the regular logs are purged immediately, so the ISP simply has nothing to hand over when copyright owners request IP-address details. Such policy is very similar to the non-logging policies of many VPN services.

Bahnhof has had this policy in place for years, but now the value of this policy is becoming apparent with mass file-sharing cases landing in Sweden. The ISP believes that if all operators stored data the way it does, they would avoid the extortion letters altogether. Bahnhof believes that other companies should think more carefully about where information is stored.

The Swedish Pirate Party applauds Bahnhof’s logging policy, discussing the problem and saying that data retention laws that are supposed to help catch terrorists shouldn’t be used against BitTorrent users.

It remains to be seen whether any of the Internet service providers currently handing over their users’ personal details will follow suit and change their policies.

eyemanozzy avatarlucky for sweeden that it's law states ip addresses must be kept for 6 months
'for criminal purpases only"
and views piracy as a civil complaint , most movies state that it's against the law in usa to abuse copyright, now us law apllies world wide in regard that but not like their policy on fair use only applies to them and no one else because they gain profit and only they can !!

analogkid6103 avatarThey wont be satisfied until they get a public execution for it. They compare us to terror. They eventually will falsify some sort of bogus link to use the tactics against us. Or am I just reading the whole thing wrong?
I doubt it. Read some of their propaganda articles and they paint us as the worst.
Its gonna get interesting. Yay fun!
