Stichting BREIN brought an action against “X”, because X made a large number of works protected by copyright and neighbouring rights available to the public by uploading them on Usenet. Usenet is currently used primarily for the illegal distribution and downloading of entertainment content.

Stichting BREIN sought a declaratory judgement and an order prohibiting further infringement. X was to appear before the Gelderland District Court, Arnhem location, on 17 March 2021.
