Anti-Piracy Group Tracks Down YouTube Pirate

As far as I know, anti-piracy groups have no legal authority to track people down and force them to cease pirating movies. Do any of you know how this is legal overseas and why BREIN can circumvent the legal system like this?

Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN continues to put pressure on pirates all over the Internet, including those on YouTube. This week they forced a pirating film uploader to cease his activities, warning that repeat infringers may have to pay penalties that could run into the thousands of euros.
