Brein steps up anti-piracy moves

The Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (national data protection authority) granted Brein permission to collect the IP-addresses of pirating BitTorrent users, allowing the group to approach uploaders on a broader scale. However, Brein remains dependent on ISPs to link the IP addresses to names and personal data. So fra, they have resisted handing over the names and addresses of these people. – Robert Briel, Broadband TV News
