      Angry Re: ACS Law and Some Sky Broadband Customers - A Heads Up

      i have now sent 3 emails to sky asking for a explanation about why they gave my personal details to a third party and not informing me first etc.
      Also why they pander to this legal scam process and why other isp's have refused stating the collection methods for getting ip addresses are wholly inaccurate.

      guess what i have recieved nothing

      Maybe the complete silence from sky with everything concerning this means they have something to hide.

      i am now looking at other isp's who value customers and not just an excuse to milk them of there money

      I mailed the exec team, and they're doing a data subject access request for me.

      Fascinating document leaked to Cryptome detailing terms of agreement for supply of data on filesharers.

      Would the court allow that? Putting aside the doubtful validity of this scam, the court order is issued to obtain details of people likely to be included in proceedings if it gets to court. Should these people be given advance notice by someone not directly involved in the alleged wrongdoing that they may be taken to court?

      Good luck!

      Sounds from what I have read that Sky have a nice little earner from fees for this business, which is probably why they accepted the court orders without challenge. Sky aren't coming out of this with much credit but how are they 'milking customers of there money' by taking a fee to supply information a court has told them to give? Surely it's the other way round - if they had to pay lawyers to challenge the orders then we would be the ones paying for that through our subscriptions going up.

      my arguement is that it is widely known that the method used to trap ip addresses is flawed and innocent customers like me are sent harrassment letters demanding 500 pounds and up for alleged copying of 1 film worth no more that 10.
      Other isp providers put a stop to this and refused to co-operate with this pratice and ACS law now dont bother collecting data from theses ISP's. This goes to show that for ACS LAW it is all about money.
      SKY still let it continue and so more INNOCENT valued sky customers get sent letters. SKY get paid for every IP address given to ACS LAW so why would the stop this money making scheme for them. It is only there own valued customers getting hurt, but that dosn't seem to bother them
