Legal With bad news after bad news when it comes to consumer rights in relation to software and copyright, it's always refreshing to see that there are still people in high places who aren't yet bought by big content. Late last week, a major battle was won for consumer rights in Switzerland: Switzerland's Federal Supreme Court has ruled that IP addresses are personal information, and therefore, fall under the country's strict privacy laws, and may not be used by anti-piracy companies.

You call it "piracy" several times in the article (as well as in your comments in this thread). If you're going to routinely use inaccurate, sensationalist language to describe "copyright infringement" then you should hardly be surprised when other people do as well.

I never use the term "piracy" unless it relates to the hijacking of ships.
