Swedish Court: Pirate Bay Blocked For 3 Years


A Court of Appeal has ordered The Pirate Bay and streaming portal
Swefilmer to be blocked by an ISP in Sweden. The landmark ruling, in
favor of Universal Music, Sony Music, Warner Music, and the Swedish
film industry, will see local ISP Bredbandsbolaget forced to block the
sites for the next three years.
In today’s judgment, the Patent and Market Court held that right
holders such as film and music companies can obtain a court order in
Sweden against an ISP, which forces the ISP to take measures to
prevent copyright infringement committed by others on the Internet,”
Court of Appeals Judge Christine Lager said in a statement.
