Denmark – Court Awards Damages In Denmark BitTorrent Action

NJORD Law firm has just received the first favorable decision from the Danish courts in a bittorrent action for the download of their client’s motion picture.

The judgement for the Rights Holder was granted “based on the case as presented including the evidence submitted”.

The reasoning is short but strong. NJORD Law firm included in their submission all correspondence with the defendant containing the arguments and defenses as well as factual circumstances of the case.

The damages of the claim were set at DKK 5,000 (€ 667) being only a part of a potential bigger claim. The Rights Holder has been granted the full amount as well as interest and also awarded cost of DKK 1,560 (€ 208). The cost alone being higher than NJORDS settlement offer of € 200 and considered high in Danish court practice.
