UK broadband provider BT claims that Media CAT firm has already confirmed the deletion of all customer information it was sent under file-sharing litigation. Moreover, the ISP says it has already gone to court in order to force Digiprotect to do the same.
After ACS:Law firm has officially quit playing the “speculative invoicing” game, British Internet service provider BT decided to demand that its anti-P2P clients eliminate identifying customer information submitted within now debunked “pay-up-or-else” scheme.
Recently the UK Patents County Court Judge decided that Media CAT was only a “licensee” but not an actual rights owner, and dismissed twenty-seven file-sharing lawsuits. However, since last summer the ISPs have been supplying the anti-P2P company with details of their customers under the court order. Those who refused to do so have secured another order meaning that the personal details must not be disclosed. Meanwhile, Media CAT also assured the ISPs that all customer information sent to the company earlier has already been erased.
Ministry of Sound also tried to target several thousand of file-sharers last year through similar “pay-up-or-else” letters. The recipients of the notifications were demanded to pay up to $550 or face legal action. Although Ministry of Sound decided to quit the scheme after several months, the ISPs have made sure to obtain a court order releasing them from the obligation to release the identities of the alleged file-sharers.
Another ACS:Law client, Digiprotect, is also being approached by BT with the plans to obtain a court order forcing it to erase all customer information in its possession. The Internet service provider has already disclosed some personal data of its customers under a court order a year ago. BT had been challenging Digiprotect on its use of that information, but never got satisfactory reply, so the ISP decided to take the issue back to court and secure an order demanding Digiprotect to delete the information.
It really looks like the broadband provider is aggressively proactive with protecting its subscribers’ details. Aside from the abovementioned actions, BT is also drafting a “new framework policy” to deal with possible anti-P2P requests.
