  4. A recent study published through the European Parliamentary Research Service suggests that a new 'EU Anti-Piracy Act' is the most effective way to tackle online piracy of sports events and other premium content. This new legislation should harmonize anti-piracy policies and tools across EU member states, providing strong enforcement options including site-blocking. In recent years the European Commission has proposed and adopted various legislative changes to help combat online piracy. This includes the Copyright Directive which passed last
  5. Should copyright trolls, whose only purpose is to extract settlements from alleged BitTorrent pirates, be allowed to obtain their identities from ISPs? According to a legal opinion from Advocate General Szpunar to the EU Court of Justice, if national courts believe the request is unjustified or unlawful, the answer is no.

  6. The European Commission has released its 2020 piracy watch list which provides an overview of notorious markets located outside of the EU.

In most countries, this is against the law. Thi
