From being one of the safest places in Europe to share files a few years ago, Sweden continues to prove problematic for those who share large amounts of music.
Following an investigation by the Swedish arm of IFPI, two men now stand accused of sharing around 3,000 tracks using Direct Connect. This method of sharing files leaves users wide open to accusations of mass infringement, since all the material they make available is viewable in one place.
