I would not be surprised at all. Maybe we could ask Birgitta Jonsdóttir
or someone else at IMMI (Smári might be informed about this).

Last time I checked out something about copyright in Iceland... I
collaterally found that authors there have even right to a commission on
the sale of their books on the second hand marketplace.

I guess that when we combine that with the virtual absence of Pirate
Movement... there is a tough battle to be fought there.
