Dutch e-book sellers to work with Brein against piracy

Monday 26 August 2013 | 10:25 CET | News
A number of e-book sellers have agreed to provide information to the anti-piracy group Brein about customers suspected of software piracy. Brein director Tim Kuik told Tweakers the information is provided at Brein's request, under the contract online shops providing e-books sign with the distribution platform eBoekhuis. The e-books use a watermark to try to combat illegal sharing of the material. Kuik underlined that the information provided by e-book sellers only applies to individual cases at the request of rightsholders, and is not a structural means of collecting information. The book industry will save customer information for two years. The Dutch privacy regulator CBP cleared the agreement before it was applied.
