The Public Prosecutor for Special Economic and International Crime (SØIK) carried out an action in which six people were arrested and charged with copyright infringement. The law enforcement operation included searches at multiple locations, with the assistance of the National Police’s National Cyber ​​Crime Center (NC3), according to Denmark’s Rights Alliance.

According to Denmark’s Public Prosecutor for Special Economic and International Crime (SØIK), the actions are an extension of the efforts against illegal file-sharing services, where SØIK uncovered and contributed to the closure of large file-sharing services such as DanishBits, NordicBits and Asgrd over the past year.

Why it matters

Active efforts to shut down piracy in Denmark are ongoing. In December 2020, the Danish Rights Alliance had announced the closure of the last two pirate sites operating in Denmark, and began turning its attention to consumer education, but pirates are notorious for evading shut-down by moving sites, IP addresses and changing methods.
