Long-held complaints of British consumer group “Which?” made about the “bullying” and “excessive” conduct of one of the anti-P2P law firms is finally scheduled to be heard, although the complaints were made over 2 years ago.

Only after almost 2 years of delay, the London law firm will finally face the SRA (Solicitors Regulatory Authority) in the very end of the next spring.

The largest consumer body in the United Kingdom, “Which?”, accounting for more than 650 thousand members have long been complaining to the solicitors’ watchdog that a current and former partner at Davenport Lyons law firm, David Gore and Brian Miller, had been sending out literally “bullying” notifications to thousands of innocent consumers.

Davenport Lyons has been targeted alleged file-traders en mass for a while. The users were accused of unauthorized downloading of whatever is protected by copyright – from music to porn. They were sent letters from the firm, where the latter demanded payment of around $750 in compensation for copyright violation. Meanwhile, lots of the recipients, particularly elderly couple not interested in gaming and porn, were falsely accused.

The consumer group called the law firm’s efforts “bullying”, and was quick to complain to the SRA about how the firm’s letters made improper statements related to the nature of copyright violation. Besides, Davenport Lyons kept ignoring the evidence defense presented, as well as increasing the rate of compensation demanded over the period of correspondence. Moreover, the notifications incorrectly threatened that if a broadband connection is not properly secured, it may constitute grounds for legal action.

Although the law firm soon decided to quit the anti-pirate legal business, it couldn’t stop the complaint process from developing further. Now it’s nice for those falsely accused to know that they will finally get to have their complaints heard. Meanwhile, it’s really a shame it has taken that long.

Miller, former intellectual property partner, and Gore, equity partner, are scheduled to face the tribunal on the 31 May, 2011. The list of allegations includes diminishing the trust in the legal profession by their actions. Another anti-piracy firm – ASC:Law – will also face the Disciplinary Tribunal over the same accusations.
