Swedish ISP Thwarts Copyright Cops by Erasing Data

Quote:
The Swedish telecom operator Tele 2 plans to erase all data identifying its 600,000 customers, a decision that will undermine the new IPRED law and make the hunt for internet scofflaws more difficult.


Starting on Tuesday, Tele 2 will destroy records of IP addresses after they’ve been processed for internal use. It’s a way to secure the customers’ privacy — and, the company likely hopes, to strengthen the ISP’s market position.


“This is a strong wish from our customers and therefore we’ve decided to no longer keep records of customers’ IP addresses,” Tele2’s CEO in Sweden, Niclas Palmstierna, told the Swedish news agency TT. “We do this to strengthen the protection of customer privacy.”


“We’ve analyzed the legislation carefully and found that we have no obligations at all to store information about our customers’ IP addresses,” he continued.

Hi there
Well I suppose they DID have to do something after the Swedish Legal system judging by the TPB kangaroo court fiasco with the biased judges showed itself to be not even on a par with Zimbabwe's.

Isn't Sweden still the suicide capital of the world or did that die out in the 80's.

Cheeers
