Eniro takes Gulan AB to court

Eniro takes Gulan AB to court Eniro Sverige AB has instituted legal proceedings against Gulan AB and Mediaförlaget Företagstele International AB, subsidiaries of TeleDanmark. The proceedings relate to the violation of Eniro's rights regarding copyright and directory protected material in the network publication of Eniro's service "Gula Sidorna", the Swedish equivalent to Yellow Pages. The proceedings have been instituted following abortive requests to Gulan and Mediaförlaget to implement the relevant measures voluntarily. Eniro claims that substantial parts of the information contained on the website gulan.se has been taken, without consent, from Eniro's network publication Gula Sidorna on the website gulasidorna.se. Consequently, the provision and publication of this information on gulan.se constitute a violation of Eniro's rights. Furthermore, the planned publishing of printed tele-directories with the same content constitutes a violation of Eniro's rights according to the Swedish Copyright Act. In the application to the court, Eniro requests, among other things, that Mediaförlaget and Gulan should immediately desist from the continuation of the violation and erase the information in question from the website gulan.se.
