Legal Every now and then you come across these news items that make just too much sense to be true. Earlier this year, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry threatened Norway's largest ISP, Telenor: block access to The Pirate Bay within 14 days, or face legal action. Telenor refused to comply - so it went to court. In what can only be seen as a major victory, the judge sided with Telenor.

Sounds like frivolous litigation to me.

Seriously, what kind of legal reasoning did this federation use to arrive at the conclusion they could win such a lawsuit?

IANAL, but in the states, I'm pretty sure such a lawsuit would be laughed out of court and have "frivolous litigation" written all over it.
