    The Local (Sweden): Telia forced to reveal file-sharing customer

    The Local reports on a file-sharing case in Sweden:

    Swedish Internet provider TeliaSonera has been forced to disclose the identity of a customer believed to be behind file-sharing site Swetorrents, after losing a court case to a consortium of film companies in the District Court.

    If TeliaSonera refuses to reveal the name and address of the IP address holder, the company will face a fine of SEK 750,000 [about $107,000 US dollars].

    The court based its decision on the grounds that there is a probable case for copyright rights infringement. […]

    TeliaSonera is expected to appeal the District Court’s decision.
