      Hi
      Remember me? Not posted for a while

      ACS:Law Take Alleged File-Sharers To Court But Fail On a Grand Scale | TorrentFreak

      Anyone who has paid, unfortunately, has been well and truly scammed. All who have defended SKY are fools.
      SKY have not defended or protected their customers in any way. They take your subscriptions and then get paid to reveal your details to a law firm who then claim copyright infringement. They dont give a ******, as long as they get paid.
      It has now been revealed that this whole process is flawed and that the evidence, the copyright claim, and the letters sent out by ACS Law are nothing but speculative invoicing.

      I don't think that that comes as a surprise. However a court order is a court order. I think it's the court's (and thus government legislation) that are to blame for so easily issuing the court order.

      Nothing there to change the situation. Like the previous poster said, a court order is a court order. Or would you rather be with TalkTalk or BT, who oppose ACS:Law but were happy to give Phorm access to customer browsing habits without asking?

      You pays yer money and you get screwed one way or the other. Fact of life with large businesses.

      This is interesting from the "Privacy International Annual Report"

      https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&p...ur06BjM_&hl=en

      Wrote statement of claim for an injunction against NPO data after discovering BSkyB had contaminated the data they sent to ACS:Law currently working with barristers to file for injunction in the high court.

      Shame they don't actually provide any detail of the 'contamination'. What does it mean?

      I used to download the odd movie but got fed up with the rubbish quality (even the ones rated V10 - A9 you know what i mean) and files that were not what they were supposed to be, had voice sync issues, or took ages to download, I now prefer to watch films in HD so have Sky.

      I have often wondered what would happen if you said you had inadvertently turned off your wireless security when you had problems with your router and someone else must have used your connection to download the files, how could they prove it was not the case?

      It means that Sky, in at least one instance, supplied the name and address of a customer who was not a Broadband subscriber. They only had a TV package.
      Apparantly they have some problems in accurately identifying who is using an IP address at a specific time.

      At the end of the day, Copyright is BIG business in the states. If he can get even 1% (normal figure for mail shots) to respond, then he's doing well.

      Many people will automatically pay because they know that they've probably downloaded lots of other stuff.

      Issues that need to be addressed are data security. If the copyright companies deal with companies that do not protect client details, then they will leave themselves open to prosecution. I'm sure that if 1,000s of people wrote to 'Imaginary Film Makers' and threatened them with a failure under the Data Protection act, not only would they drop the ACS Law demands, but also find themselves shelling out lots in compensation.

      Sadly it isn't always the big firms that are loosing money over software piracy. I have a friend who writes software and her product has been pirated. She & her partner live of the money it makes and spend a lot of time developing it further. Is it right that someone should get a free copy when they need the money to survive?
