For years the online environment in Norway has been tipped in the favor of file-sharers. There have been barriers to rightsholders monitoring alleged pirates and torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay have been accessible to all.

In May 2011, things began to change when the Ministry of Culture announced proposed amendments to the Copyright Act aimed at giving rightsholders “they tools they need” in order to tackle online copyright infringement.

Fast forward a little over two years and the Government’s plans are now about to come to fruition. On July 1 a new law will come into effect and change the online file-sharing environment forever.

Previously only a single licensed entity had permission to monitor file-sharers online but from the first of next month any rightsholder or trade group may do so, providing they inform the country’s data inspectorate in advance.

According to Willy Johansen, Secretary General of the Norwegian Videograms Association, a brand new anti-piracy group is currently being formed to make use of the new freedoms available to rightsholders.

“We are in the starting blocks to start a rights alliance in Norway, as we have done in Denmark and Sweden,” Johansen told Tu.

Of course should they gather any data they will have to inform the person they suspect of copyright infrigement of the data they have gathered as otherwise they are in breach of EU data directives.

It seems as always the pro copyright lobby have greased a few palms so their paymasters can rip the rest of us off with overly broad copyright time frames and restrictive monopoly licencing, and they wonder why folks have no respect for such economically created laws that are sold as tax revenue generators to the govt and "for the ppor artists" to the public but those multinational groups pushing for such laws and agreements are the real beneficiaries, we all know the numbers 90% to the fat cats and 10% if they are lucky to the artists, the fat cat middle men really need to go on a diet.

Folks need not be threatened, they will pay a fee with pride as long as the price is fair.
