Wikipedia Page is Vandalized by Anti-Piracy Outfit

Mass lawsuits on the issue of illegal file-sharing now go international. For example, last week the US Copyright Group followed in the UK’s ACS:Law’s footsteps, which used to send out several thousand of letters demanding to pay £300-500 to lots of people, some of whom didn’t even have a computer.

So far such model has been working extensively in the United Kingdom and Germany. As the anti-piracy groups performing most of it (including the bullying of users that were not ready to protect themselves), the individual lawyers, working these schemes out, have been noticed for the most criticism.

However, not all the anti-piracy outfits seem to be proud of being associated with their work. Lawyers of the UK’s TBI (Tilly Bailey & Irvine) Solicitors have been working hard earlier in April. Not sure about another mass litigation yet, but at least one definite action is clear – they edited much of their page on Wikipedia, trying to disguise their involvement in it, and getting themselves a warning for copyright infringement.

These lawyers were only starting to introduce their model in the country, but contrived to get a very stormy entrance. In just several weeks the Government negatively noted their actions and their company got publicly associated with their clients from the porno industry.

The tech-savvy noticed the attempts of TBI, and reacted by expanding their page on Wikipedia, adding the facts about their activities in this field. They exactly pointed out Lord Clement-Jones criticizing the company and concerns of the UK’s consumer rights outfit “Which?” They also quoted Lord Young saying that the government would keep watch on TBI.

The company didn’t like the additions at all. At least, that seems to be the only reason why an unknown employee of TBI deleted the whole section with all the critics. Nobody knows why he decided to do it from the IP registered to TBI. A Wikipedia admin reacted immediately responding “Removing sourced content from Wikipedia is vandalism!” The smart users added to the talk a suggestion for the company to familiarize itself with the policy they don’t want to be associated with, and a notice that they’ve got a large piece of text copypasted from another website, which definitely brings up a copyright problem.

Actually, TBI has already dropped some lawsuits against users who denied the accusations. So probably the company is just intending to move out of this? That would be a good explanation to Wikipedia vandalism.
