It most likely can be used (there is no "fruit of the poisonous tree" doctrine). Drawing on this analysis (I can't locate Nytt juridiskt arkiv 1986 online). (Rättegångsbalken, SFS 1942:740) Chapter 35 Section 1 (35 Kap.) allows free "sifting, submission, evaluation" of evidence. Evidence can be rejected as insignificant. Specifically (following the analysis ...

Chapter 26 section 7 of the Swedish Penal Code points to a possible consequence of prison escape: If the sentenced person seriously violates the conditions for the serving of the sentence in a prison, the date for conditional release may be postponed. Such a postponement may amount to at most fifteen days on each ...

That is a very broad clause, broader than the default US rule for copyright, for example. (I know the question asked about the UK, I just happen to know the US copyright rule.) It would seem on the face of it to include independent research on a subject totally unrelated to the person's employment, done off the company's premises and not during normal work ...

As someone with ties to the "foreign" community in the United States, I see these "marriages of convenience" from time to time. In their most "legitimate" form, the couple will move to the same address and "technically" live together, but without consummating the marriage so that it can later be legally annulled. American immigration authorities counter this ...

Aside from being a concerned citizen, one may wonder why you care so much but for some sort of personal grudge against these people...that said, you've done your civic duty. It's not up to the citizenry to prove criminal cases on behalf of the state. They have the complaint (by you) of criminal activity. Some jurisdictions (like the U.S.) investigate and ...

Under Swedish copyright law, a work such as a movie is protected for 70 years after the death of the "creator". It is unclear who the copyright holder is, but it has not been 70 years since the film was made. Unless it was explicitly "released into the public domain", it is still protected, so you can get sued.

Landlord or tenant responsible for the furnishing damaged after a flooding? This brief analysis of Scandinavian Contract Law explains the difficulty of addressing with certainty matters of Swedish contract law. Despite the legal and factual ambiguities, it seems to me that the contract terms and landlord's conduct preclude his entitlement to a ...

Literal Answer: Anyone can file a lawsuit for anything, doesn't mean you will win or that the judge will let it go as far as trial, but you can certainly file a lawsuit. Deeper answer: Yes they can file a lawsuit assuming they have been given authority to represent the copyright holders. The problem with succeeding in such a lawsuit is proving who is ...

The examples you cite are all based on national law in Sweden and other Nordic countries. If you check GDPR Article 7(1)(e), you will see that processing is lawful if: processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; Further down in the same ...

According to this article, the Malmö Administrative District Court found that the intent of the user is immaterial to whether a camera is being used for surveillance, so even if that is not why you are doing this, it counts legally as "surveillance". The law requires a permit from the länsstyrelse (county? government), according to the Kameraövervakningslag (...

People running web servers are generally liable for contributory culpability, when some user breaks the law by putting the material on the server. There are legal mechanisms for relieving the server guy from this burden. The best-known mechanism is "DMCA takedown", where you publish contact information so that an offended person can serve up a proper legal ...

A VPN operator has to follow the laws in the country where they operate. If the laws in Sweden say that a VPN operator must keep logs of user activity, then they have to keep logs of user activity. If it makes you feel better: There are two kinds of VPN operators. Those that say they log, and those that lie about logging.

First, I assume you mean that someone changed the lock and didn't give you a key. I also assume that you have the permission of the landlord or the local housing association for this subletting arrangement. And I also assume that the landlord gave the primary tenant permission to change the lock (and may or may not have a key, which they may or may not ...

This is both a legal and political question. All three countries have extradition treaties with each other. Citizens of a country are usually more difficult to extradite from that country, but Assange is not a citizen of any of those countries. All extradition requests would proceed in accordance with these treaties. But these treaties can be complex: the ...

It certainly makes a claim of self-defence harder to justify. In Sweden, the law of self-defense (Swedish: nödvärn) allows a person attacked to excuse or justify a proportionate use of violence in defense of the person or property. The criteria is if the force used was "blatantly unjustifiable". By placing golf clubs the stalking victim is preparing to ...

English law answer: That is a pretty badly drafted clause, at least with respect to how it would be viewed in an English court. Perhaps the clause is part of a larger section which sets out the scope of all clauses as relating to the employee's employment? The word "term" means that any intellectual property the person has created shall vest into the ...

No, you have generally no absolute right to request this data to be removed in Sweden. I assume you refer to services like Hitta.se and Merinfo.se. They are to some extent exempted from GDPR in Sweden under the Law on Freedom of Expression, which overrules GDPR (see Article 85 GDPR). These services are granted a certain license to distribute information, ...

There is no general right to download a copy of a book. You may acquire such a right from the rights-holder when you buy a physical book, but otherwise that would be illegal copyright infringement. Any online copy that you find in the wild is probably illegal, if the book is not free. (However, some books are freely downloadable but there is a charge for a ...

You cannot claim damages because the government has sovereign immunity for functions performed as a government. That is, it can only be sued when it agrees to be sued. Notwithstanding, even if the government agrees to be sued by you, you probably won't win. If the "admittor" was exercising discretion that they properly possess under administrative law (...

The law (which is Swedish to me) indicates complexities regarding parents with different last names and whether you have older siblings (I guess the rule is that you can't have a different last name from your nearest older sibling, if this is the same parents. If the name isn't properly registered (e.g. not done within 3 months) then the name defaults to the ...
