Another UK Law Firm Targets File-Sharers

Another UK Law Firm Targets File-Sharers

TBI Solicitors is sending out an unknown number of letters to alleged illegal file-sharers threatening them legal action if they don’t agree to pay a compensation of £700 ($1,000) for illegal sharing of porno material copyrighted by Golden Eye (International). That is one of the tactics used by copyright owners in order to try and fight illegal file-sharing – to allow overzealous law firms targeting as many illegal file-sharers as they possibly can.


This tactic has almost never worked, including the recent case of ACS:Law firm, which announced an original project to target about fifteen thousand supposed illegal file-sharers in the United Kingdom within the bounds of revolutionary model of business which increases the profits for copyright owners and efficiently reduces copyright violation in a moderate and steady way. That was declared to be as opposite of expensive and inefficient methods used by other firms to fight the piracy.

All it’s ever managed to accomplish is over 150 people complaints to have been accused by mistake, having this number growing rapidly with more people coming forward after learning they are not the only ones. One of the complaints said that ACS:Law had sent a letter to the seventy-eight-year-old man demanding five hundred pounds for a porn video he was supposed to have downloaded.

Now acting TBI Solicitors refused to tell how many letters they sent out as well as when they began sending them. But they revealed the nature of their attempts, saying that they act for a number of clients having instructed them to protect their rights related to copyrighted films. Fulfilling the instructions, the company has written to people who, according to information from ISPs, have unlawfully downloaded that copyrighted material.

‘Which?’, the biggest consumer body in the United Kingdom, with more than 650000 members, consider this latest news an urgent reason for Solicitors Regulation Authority to conclude their investigation against a law firm Davenport Lyons, which was accused of sending out resembling “bullying” letters to innocent consumers in the late 2008.

However, TBI Solicitors endeavor to make sure the letters comply with the Code of Practice for Pre-Action Conduct in Intellectual Property Disputes.

Well, they might do that correct, but one thing is still for sure – this tactic would never decrease piracy.
