ACS:Law Finally Shut Down Its Business

After the recent announcement during the trial that law firm ACS:Law stops chasing suspected copyright infringers, it is reported that both the law firm and its copyright client MediaCAT have finally shut down their operations.

Earlier in February ACS:Law owner Andrew Crossley announced at the Patents County Court that he is going to stop chasing suspected file-sharers. Today the news emerged that the ACS:Law hasn’t just stopped all file-sharing related activity as promised, but even completely shut down at the end of January. Moreover, it is reported that the law firm’s only remaining client MediaCAT has also shut down.

Perhaps the companies hoped that they would gain a judgement to threaten future targets, but failed. Actually, there has been a speculation that MediaCAT may decide to shut down its operations, especially when it faced an application for “wasted costs” after its catastrophic legal venture against twenty-seven suspected file-sharers. However, the observers believe that even closure may not save the enterprise’s owner from hefty payouts.

Joe Hickster, the blogger who has been supporting many file-sharers who have become targets to the law firm, greeted the news. He said that the news of the companies’ demise should be welcomed by people standing strong against ACS:Law firm and Media C.A.T. In fact, the damage caused by them can’t be overestimated, which means that it’s great news that their campaign of trolling lots of innocent people is finally at an end.

With the law firm’s owner’s upcoming appearance at the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, there has been a notification sent out to the Solicitors believing that they are able to dive into speculative invoicing.

Probably the biggest question today is how the shutdown of ACS:Law and MediaCAT would affect the upcoming court hearing, where the judge will hand out a decision on the pair’s activities.

Actually, the timing of the shutdowns won’t be any coincidence, but since such actions may have been conceived as a damage limitation exercise, they won’t be able to do anything to appease the judge who is accustomed to such scheme and unlikely to let theirs plan work out just as they wanted.

In other words, everything is fine, but show is not over yet, as it has to be heard what the judge would say.
