Pirated Movies Traced To Swedish Film Body

The Swedish Film Institute (SFI) is facing filesharing allegations after an anti-piracy company traced films that had appeared on filesharing site The Pirate Bay to an IP address at the Institute.

”From our point of view we have done everything in our power to see if there is any substance to these allegations, but so far we have found nothing,” said SFI CEO Bengt Toll to The Local.

Two weeks ago the film production company Strix and Swedish cinema giant SF Bio approached the Swedish Film Institute (SFI) with information they had received regarding Swedish films being spread illegally from the Institute and ending up on The Pirate Bay. These suspicions, they said, were well-known in the film industry.

The information originated with an anti-piracy company called DoubleTrace who say that they have been able to trace filesharing activity over the summer to an IP-address registered to the Swedish Film Institute.
