Google has to expose people, including IP-address, home address, names, emails and bank account that are selling pirated ebooks in the Google Play store. This is the verdict of Hague District Court after the Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN filed a case against Google. Initially BREIN asked Google to remove pirated e-books, which the search-giant complied to, but they refused to expose the pirates, because of privacy concerns. But now the court has settled the case and the pirates has lost one more safe harbour. BREIN has filed the case on the behalf of local book publishers. Source: Hague District Court
