In the first case tried since the passage of Sweden’s anti-file sharing law in April, an ISP has been told by a Swedish court it must hand over information about its customers to five publishers looking into copyright violations.

If the company, broadband service provider Ephone, fails to comply with the order from the Solna District Court to hand over information about the users connected to certain IP-addresses, it will face 750,000 kronor ($95,000) in fines.

The court found that there is probable cause to believe that Ephone users were violating copyrights and that the company should pay the publishers’ court costs of 75,000 kronor.
