Two years ago Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN referred a local Pirate Bay user to the authorities, who launched a criminal case against the man.

The case in question was the first criminal proceeding against a BitTorrent uploader in the Netherlands, with the prosecutor accusing 23-year-old Stefan K of uploading 5,000 e-books.

While the man admitted to uploading the torrent, his lawyer argued that the public prosecutor had no right to go after his client because file-sharing lawsuits belong in civil court.

Current policy rules prescribe that copyright infringements should only be handled in a criminal court if the defendant is part of a criminal organization, or when the infringements are carried out as business activities.
