European ISPs will not be required to disclose data on people suspected of copyright infringement, including music piracy…
Apparently, in civil cases EU states are now “allowed” by the European Court of Justice NOT TO REVEAL personal data on traffic online. Often criminal cases reveal the identities of the accused. Once identities are known, civil lawsuits are then filed.
Governments throughout the 27 member states have been forcing ISPs to take on a variety of measures.
