Handling The Threats Of File Sharing From UK

Handling The Threats Of File Sharing From UK

The House of Lords has been very harsh on file sharing ACS lawyers “legal blackmails”.

The lawyers ACS have been the target of many speculations ever since they got involved in the UK file sharing community. Their style of work has blown them up since they themselves used false accusations, misleading statements and even committed copyright infringements. Many of their cases have been dropped as they were baseless.

The press hand in hand with the House of Lords have been very active specially this week in bringing up the malpractices of the lawyers and branded them “legal blackmails”.

Andrew Crossley, ACS law owner, has been adamant on his point that his campaign against file sharers would go on. To refute criticism about almost no cases going to court, he replied that : “It has been said that we have no intention of going to court but we have no fear of it.”

To maintain his point ACS Law might take few isolated cases of infringement to court to prove his points. However he would not stand long as when faced with real cases where his stand shivers, he would back out.

NPO (Norwich Pharmacal Order), on November 19th 2009, was forced to give names and addresses of subscribers that company claims had infringed their clients’ rights.

NPO related to approximately 25000 IP addresses reaped from UK ISP BT’s customer base and a further 5,000 from various other ISPs, covering approximately 291 movie titles. The order was granted and ACS Law is now chasing these individuals for payment in cash of about 500 pounds.

Several ISPs including Be, O2, BT, Plusnet, Enternet and Kingston had no objection in handing over their customers’ private details to ACS:Law as per the law order. But UK ISP Tiscali whose customers were also in the net of the ACS Law refuse to divulge their customers base on slight bases of file sharing allegations.
Do we smell a challenge here?

“If we are ever ‘instructed’ to disconnect or throttle a customer who has not been found guilty in a court of law, we will refuse to do so and challenge the instruction through the courts if necessary” Andrew Heaney, TalkTalk’s executive director of strategy and regulation. (Talk Talk bought Tiscali last year).

Talk Talk is ready for battle if challenge and would not let down their customers’ trust by throwing out their names at a mere call for it. That a sincere show of trust, business integrity and confidence that we could wish for and ask to be member to this forceful stream under Talk Talk.

magiccrack avataryip but also the piggybacking off of other ppls connections must come into play somewhere as well, if someone d/l through torrents your hub and you know nothing about it, how would that work.

nice info SaM

mobson avatarGood article. It is fairly sickening that this is just becoming another brand of ambulance chasing for rogue law firms to make money. Roll on Michael Moore's new one, people need to know the evil that is capitalism and this is just one of its tentacles in action. Everything is now solely about the pursuit of money to the detriment of humanity and community in general.

bettaney6924 avatarI.S,P's that are letting their customers details to be handed out will find it will come back to bite them on the arse, customers will simply move to tiscali (including myself), I.S.P's charge larger ammounts for unlimited download and faster speeds they know most customers that have this package have it so they can share files, so why try to have their own customers cut off? soon as my contract is over with BT i will be heading straight to tiscali where it seems they want to keep their customers, i hope the BT bosses read this.
