I assume that the establishment you are referring to is under extra-EU law and subject to the legislation of its own country. If so, I am afraid it must share personal data in a copyright infringement proceeding. Article 6 paragraph 1 letters c) GDPR allow to disclose personal data to comply with a legal obligation.
