Swedish broadband provider Ephone has said it will appeal a controversial court ruling obliging it to hand over information about its customers to five publishers looking into copyright violations.

The Solna District Court ruled that Ephone will face 750,000 kronor ($95,000) in fines if it fails to comply with the order to hand over information about the users connected to certain IP-addresses.
