A Swedish internet service provider, Bahnhof, has a practice of deleting customer identification information "couplings" at the earliest stage possible.
The company's CEO, Jon Karlung, says he is opposed to the new Swedish anti-filesharing law, and that "It's about the freedom to choose, and the law makes it possible to retain details. We're not acting in breach of IPRED; we're following the law and choosing to destroy the details."
According to a company spokesman, earlier reports that the company had "begun" deleting customer information in order to thwart the new law which went into effect April 1st are incorrect.
