      I have the data that was made available, reading some of the emails from ACS themselves they are relying on gullible people paying up - deny it & refuse to pay and your not going to be forced to because the law says that they cannot prove it was you.

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

      BT are seeking a moratorium..
      BBC News - BT seeks moratorium on internet piracy cases
      the interesting part is..
      The case involves lawyers from law firm Gallant Macmillan, who are seeking a court order to obtain the names and addresses of a "large number" of broadband users from PlusNet, BSkyB and Be Internet suspected of illegally downloading and sharing music from the nightclub and record label Ministry of Sound.

      BSKyB were not represented at today's hearing.
      This would have been the ideal opportunity for Sky to team up with BT and put more weight to the case and put a stop to all this nonsense until everyones details can be 100% secure.

      There may not have been any need for Sky to join in.

      UK ISPs Successfully Resist File-Sharing Data Handover | TorrentFreak

      "In a statement, Plusnet’s COO Richard Fletcher wrote: “The incident involving the ACS:Law data leak has further damaged people’s confidence in the current process.

      “We’re pleased that the court has agreed to an adjournment so that our concerns can be examined by the court, this will then act as a precedent/test case for the future."

      Test cases are normally one party v another, so Ministry of Sound v Plusnet / BT (as subsidiary / parent) would be enough to set precedent for other cases.

      Nothing is going to happen now until January, which hopefully will punch a nice hole in Gallant McMillan's finances.

      Just to let you know that as from 29th October I will not be with SKY anymore or will ever go back to them because of what has happened. So it'll be hello Talk Talk for my phone and broadband and hello freesat for my TV. Also hello to the £50 odd quid I will be saving from not having Sky TV.

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

      Just to let you know (micksea173). I phoned up Sky to see what I could do about cancelling. They did refuse to cancel my contract as they couldn't take my concerns about not trusting them with my data. They also said that (what the call handler said) that none of my data was sent to any of the LAW firms mentioned, even though if they did I don't file share! So looks like I might have to go to the top? Let me know what you think.

      I went straight to the top I didn't even call the customer services. Here is a copy of the e-mail that I sent.

      Subject: ACS Law and Data you sent

      I have been finding out about the data you sent to ACS Law. I really donít care if I was one the 14,000 people on the list or not, but I feel that I cannot trust Sky with my data. I am annoyed that this has happened and I feel that the only way for me to now be satisfied is for you to released me from my contracts that I have with you. I feel that you cannot be trusted as a company with any data belonging to me.
      I want you to cancel everything that I have which is as follows
      I want my multi-room, My sky line rental, my sky talk, my sky broadband, my sky TV package and hd channels cancelled. I also want no come back to me with early release charges either.

      Yours Faithfully
      Deleted Name

      The only thing I had to send back was my HD box which I wasn't really bothered which I have done and it should be sorted out that way. Goodbye Sky and hello Freesat and Talk Talk.
