Brein take Dutch Pirate Party to court

Tuesday 24 April 2012 | 10:49 CET | News
Dutch anti-piracy group Brein wants the court to impose a ban on the Dutch Pirate Party encouraging people to bypass internet blocks, Nu.nl reported, citing a document sent by Brein to the court in The Hague. Brein wants violations to be punishable by a fine of EUR 10,000. The Pirate Party said it was not afraid of new elections this year, even if the court was to rule on the side of Brein. Internet censorship is one of the key platform issues of the party.
