Swedish Filesharing Legislation Battle Hots Up
« on: December 05, 2008, 02:03:29 am »
Signs of resistance are beginning to appear in Sweden as opinion hardens against the proposed anti-filesharing law that will no doubt bring with it more rules and regulations to curtail the habits of many Swedish filesharers.

you’re in Sweden and you “refrain” from uploading copyrighted material, and you only “occasionally” download it, you probably won’t be bothered by the Swedish police working for the entertainment cartels at taxpayer expense.

“The Swedish government says it is drafting a law that will allow record and film companies to pursue Internet users sharing music and movies illegally,” says the Associated Press, going on:
“The proposal makes it possible for industry lawyers to seek a court order to obtain the identity of a person behind an Internet subscription in cases of suspected copyright infringement, companies can then seek damages from the file-sharers in court.”

But the government says people refraining from uploading copyright-protected material and who only “occasionally” download such works won’t be identified.

However, it’s not a done deal, requiring parliamentary approval.
It’s now a bitter, full-scale global war between the entertainment industry and the people who used to be its customers.

We all know the problem with legislation creep, let one item through the door and before you know it the Cartel are "donating" to extend their rights at the expense of your own like theres no tomorrow, with this type of political abuse and interference the general public must remain on guard or face extortion and misery as a way of life.
