It’s taken a while, but music industry body IFPI has submitted a request to get the details of an alleged file-sharer from their ISP, using Sweden’s IPRED law. The legislation was introduced in April, allowing copyright holders to demand user details from ISPs, but it’s taken until now for a music industry body to make use of it. “IPRED is a law with good privacy protection for citizens, but of course we will use it to protect our members’ rights,” says IFPI Sweden chairman Ludvig Werner. However, once it gets the details, the IFPI says it has not decided whether to file a lawsuit or simply issue a warning. Source: TorrentFreak
