Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN has signed a hefty settlement with a prolific Usenet uploader. The man was identified by Usenet provider Eweka, which was ordered by a local court to cooperate. While this type of sharing is a relatively small niche, the same procedure may also apply to torrent users in the future.
Usenet provider Eweka has lost another court battle with Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN. The service provider must identify a former customer who’s accused of uploading copyright-infringing material. According to the court, the provider is obliged to do the same in future cases, without a court order.
