Lawyers Quit Anti Piracy Cases Because of Bad Publicity

Tilly Bailey & Irvine (TBI) Solicitors, a British law firm, recently dived into the new type of business – the piracy settlement letters. However, they have already decided to quit it thanks to lots of bad publicity caused by it. TBI, whose representatives were caught on a try to remove history on their own Wikipedia page in order to hide their connection to such type of business, admitted that they are afraid that their other practice could be harmed due to bad publicity.

TBI followed the steps of Davenport Lyons and ACS:Law earlier this year, entering the settlement letters business. Before that it has been around for over 170 years as a traditional law company having a good reputation. The things went bad after they became public representatives of porn-industry in anti-piracy issues. This single fact appeared to be enough to tarnish their hard-earned reputation.

As you remember, TBI has already dropped several lawsuits against users denying the accusations. So the question was – is the company intending to simply move out of such business? That could be an explanation to Wikipedia vandalism. Which?, a UK consumer group, answers the question. As it said, TBI wrote to SRA that they had been highly surprised and disappointed at the masses of publicity they had attracted in connection with their activity. The amount of time and money required to solve this single issue was also disappointing. As TBI cares about other areas of their business and understands that such publicity can affect it, they finally decided to cease the practice of sending out letters.

Hopefully, the rest of law firms involved in such kind of practice will start realizing that despite this activity can bring good money, it also could generate lots of adverse publicity due to unfairness.

BeingThreatened.com, another consumer group helping those innocent people who has been sent letters by anti-piracy outfits, also wants TBI to apologize. They admitted their mistake already, and this is a huge step forward. But saying sorry would help them restore confidence in TBI as a firm and in the legal system as a whole. The company which used to have such a great reputation shouldn’t be abused for earning money by suing innocent and unaware people.

So far ACS:Law remains the only type of business in the United Kingdom which doesn’t care about damage to reputation at all.
