Swedish Police Violating Copyright Law?

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "The Swedish police, who have been instrumental in various raids against file sharing sites apparently may have a bit of a piracy problem on their own hands. It seems that they wanted to put together a database of shoe print info for matching shoe prints to the type of shoe at crime scenes. To do so, they used images found online, and some Swedish copyright experts have noted that this appears to violate Swedish copyright law. The police claim that there's an exception for police investigations, but people (and some shoe companies) are pointing out that creating a database isn't about an investigation."
