A court in Amsterdam has ruled that ISPs are not required to supply details on customers suspected of illegal file-sharing to the Stichting Brein. The case had been brought by the foundation, which works on protecting digital copyright, against ISPs UPC, Essent Kabelcom, Tiscali, Wanadoo and KPN. According to the court, supplying details on the customers name, address and IP would infringe on European privacy laws.
