Los Angeles – Draft legislation was approved in Finland last
week that will see Internet service providers (ISP) in the country send out
warning letters to subscribers believed to be engaging in file-sharing of
copyrighted works, TorrentFreak reported.
Unlike the case with France, repeat
offenders will not have their Internet connections suspended, nor will their
identities be turned over to copyright holders.
"The proposed approach is
taken to guarantee that the subscriber’s identity data stays with the Internet
service provider and is not disclosed to the copyright holder," Government
Minister Jorma Walden said in a statement.
