Abstract:     
This is an English translation of the Danish injunction order in the so-called thepiratebay.org case decided on 26 November 2008 by the Court of Appeals, Denmark.

Appellant is a Danish ISP. Appellees are the music industry. The court affirmed the ordered from the Bailiff's Court of Frederiksberg (Copenhagen) [Frederiksberg Fogedrets Kendelse FS 14324/2007] of 5 February 2008.

The court ordered the ISP – a Danish telephone company – to block its customers from access to the Swedish website, www.thepiratebay.org, which helps users get music files from each other.

Indirectly, the case involves the international issue of how to block online access to information or business from foreign countries and thus hinder international exchange of data – one of the main purposes with the Internet.

It also involved the problems copyright holders are having online to protect their interests.
