FAST Asked ACS:Law’s Mass Lawsuit to Go Further

The Federation Against Software Theft wants that file-sharing cases against 26 people targeted within the ACS:Law mass lawsuit campaign continue despite the law firm’s attempts to drop the cases.

FAST is dismayed that the anti piracy law firm is trying to dismiss their file-sharing cases, and is urging ACS:Law to continue them. Last month the ACS:Law’s owner took a decision to quit his “pay-up-or-else” business model of targeting thousands of Internet users at a time.

The request came after the Judge Birss QC didn’t allow the firm to drop 26 cases before trial. All the cases had been lumped together by the Judge for having some unusual features. The Federation Against Software Theft thinks that the cases should continue in order to let file-sharers know there’s always a risk of being caught. They truly believe that people should be aware of the risk to be caught when they are sharing illegal content. Meanwhile, FAST agree that due process must be followed, as well as all other rights respected, but the main idea remains the same: unauthorized file-sharing should still be tackled. However, they emphasized that it doesn’t mean that the file-sharing in general is a wrong activity, but only when the copyrighted content is shared without the rights owner’s permission.

Judge Birss believes that the law firm was only trying to have the cases dismissed to avoid judicial scrutiny, and listed several concerns over the plaintiffs’ “evidence” of infringement. In their turn, FAST brushed aside those concerns, pointing out that the only important issue is trying to convince people of the value of online content. That’s why they want the cases to continue: file-sharers should be aware of the consequences to what they do, because otherwise their behavior won’t change. However, FAST is also committed to see the technical concerns addressed, saying that if the court decides that the current methods of identifying people responsible for violation are inadequate, such methods can be improved in the future to make sure that the innocent aren’t hold responsible.

Thus far it seems that The Federation Against Software Theft will likely get its way thanks to Judge Birss, who has refused to drop the cases, as well as Guy Tritton, the lawyer of several defendants, even pursuing damages for “wasted costs.”

menahunie avatarHave you noticed these stupidity is being continued by third parties and no input from the "copyright" holders themselves? Think of the multi million dollar lawsuits to come from the "violators" due to this scheme that is nothing but Extortion..
