IP crimes in Sweden

According to the Swedish police, violation of copyright is the most common IP crime in Sweden.  File sharing is an example of violation of copyright, and Sweden is in third place amongst the EU-countries when it comes to illegal music downloads.

75% of the reports on IP crime made to the Swedish police are related to violation of copyright and file sharing.  20% of the reports are related to cardsharing.  Cardsharing is a relatively new area and is related to access to media without paying.  The remaining 5% are related to trademark infringement or pirate copying of goods.
