Swedish ISP appeals court order to identity torrent owner

From TorrentFreak:
"The Swedish ISP TeliaSonera is refusing to comply with a court ruling ordering the company to hand over information identifying the owner of SweTorrents. Instead, it has appealed the decision, arguing that the verdict is in violation of the European data retention directive and claiming that SweTorrents doesn’t host any copyrighted files."
The piece goes on to claim that if the ISP's appeal is successful the new (2009) Swedish implementation of the Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement directive "will be crushed". Don't bet on it.
