Phone company looks after their numbers

A new law in Sweden forces companies to share names and IP addresses of clients suspected of illegal file transfers. A debate has escalated as Sweden’s biggest telecom company, Telia Sonera, is refusing to share the details of one of its customers arguing that doing so would be a breach of confidentiality.
