Swedish court: Search-warrants cannot be issued For File Sharers

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:28 am

It seems that a recent decision by Swedish court will make it more difficult for the RIAA to find the persons behind the ip-addresses. “The court is confirming that file sharing is punishable by fines. This means that the police are not permitted to demand details of the addresses behind IP addresses and cannot carry out house searches”.

What it translates to is that since the crime will only render in fines and not prison time, Search-warrants cannot be issued.
