  1. I would also consider slapping a default on their company credit file as well.
  2. from reading his emails on that other forum. you do have to say that crossley is like a robotic parrot and so full of his own self importance it beggars belief lol
  3. standard carter nonsense not worth paper its printed on. it will cost him to take you to court and wouldnt be worth his while in terms of what hed receive back if anything at all
  4. have you ever heard such nonsense lol i laugh at such comments as "not going to let you get away with running away" errr and what can they do exactly? the answer is sweet fa other than go to a court. the dca industry really does delude itself that it has all these powers over the public that is does not. sure they can come to a persons door but then can simply be told to go away and if they refuse thats were the police are called to make them go away and other authorities get involved like the oft and trading standards
  5. We are pleased with the results on the initial batches of issued claims, as we have found that 80% of all defendants opt for settlements outside of court, for amounts more than originally claimed. Copyright infringers generally buckle when litigation is formally initiated. Our experience shows that most will seek an out of court settlement and offer to pay costs to date. It has always been our intention to set a favourable precedent and whilst it is disappointing that these settlements mean that a fully contested case has yet to reached the courts, our client's have been successful in recovering monies lost to piracy. Based on these successes, we have been instructed to increase the number of claims we issue at court by at least 300% over the coming months. We are confident that we will be able to set a number favourable precedents to build on the existing case law in 2010. The intellectual property department at ACS Law has been going from strength to strength. We have been in the news recently and as a direct result of the increased publicity, we are pleased to announce the acquisition of substantial new clients, including a number of well known songwriters and software companies. In order to fully service our new clients, we will be doubling the size of our team in the very near future. Exciting times ahead. taken from their website today. the arrogance of this lot knows no bounds
  6. Mobile firm O2 has stepped into the row over thousands of controversial letters that are being sent to alleged illegal file-sharers in the UK. It condemned the attempts "by rights holders and their lawyers to bully or threaten our customers". The row centres around UK law firm ACS:Law and its client DigiProtect, an anti-piracy firm which represents a series of content owners. ACS: Law denies that its letters are bullying in nature. "Neither we nor our clients threaten or bully anyone. We send out letters of claim to account holders of internet connections where those internet connections have been identified as being utilised for illegal file-sharing of our clients' copyrighted works," said Andrew Crossley of ACS: Law. "Our letter makes an enquiry in that regard and invites the recipient of our letter to respond to this evidence. In addition they are invited to enter into a compromise to avoid litigation," he added. The firm is in the process of contacting thousands of alleged UK pirates and offers them the chance to settle out of court for around £500 per infringement. O2's broadband customers are among those sent letters. "Where we are legally obliged to provide information and the correct paperwork is presented, we will comply with the law," said an O2 spokesman. "But we prefer the 'win-win' approach of encouraging the development of new business models that offer customers the content they want, how they want it, for a fair price," he added. One-off payment My clients are losing money because of copyright infringement and they are equally upset that their copyright is being stolen Andrew Crossley, ACS: Law ACS: Law says it has so far identified around 60,000 different UK IP addresses, which reveal the identity of individual computers. It is in the process of applying for court orders which would force the internet service provider behind the IP address to hand over the physical address of the individual connected to the computer. Not all IP addresses will result in a physical address because one machine can generate more than one IP address and, in some cases, the ISP is unable to find the real address. ACS: Law estimates that for every 1,000 IP addresses it requests court orders for it will get around 400 actual addresses. Investigation Many of the cases already under way were passed on to ACS: Law by another law firm, Davenport Lyons, which originally began the claims. Davenport Lyons has been subject to an investigation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority over its role in sending letters to alleged pirates. The SRA confirmed to the BBC that two of the partners, Brian Miller and David Gore, have been referred to its disciplinary tribunal. "We are very aware of the public and parliamentary concern about the issue behind the Davenport Lyons complaint," said a SRA spokesman. ACS: Law is also being investigated by the SRA. ACS: Law declined to say how many of the cases it is pursuing have been settled out of court or how many have been dropped but Mr Crossley said that "some are in court at the moment". The process used by ACS: Law has courted controversy because the accuracy of methods used to identify pirates. Experts argue that an IP address cannot be used as evidence in court because it is not proof that the owner of the PC was actually responsible for the downloading. Hundreds of people have complained to consumer watchdog Which?, saying that they have been wrongly accused, including pensioners who claim they don't know how to download content. It has caused distress to some of the accused, particularly as some of the content they are accused of downloading is hardcore pornography. 'Scared' The Murdochs were wrongly accused of illegal file-sharing "My clients are losing money because of copyright infringement and they are equally upset that their copyright is being stolen," said Mr Crossley. He declined to identify any of the clients represented by DigiProtect, beyond saying "there are a variety, some in music, some computer games and some in adult content movies". In the UK the government has toughened its stance on illegal downloading and its new policy, if approved by the parliament, will see letters sent to people believed to be involved in illegal downloading "The notifications will "guide recipients towards legal services" and "may refer to the prospect of court action", according to UK music industry representative BPI. The BPI said it has no intention of following a similar path to ACS: Law. But Mr Crossley threw down the gauntlet to other rights holders. "I think the BPI is letting its members down. I think they are scared of alienating their customers," he said. "My clients don't have the same fear. They take the view that the people they target aren't their customers because they are stealing from them," he said. Mr Crossley said that the copyright owners got a fair share of the revenue generated by the process. "After my expenses the copyright owner is the largest single beneficiary," he said. Another law firm has recently begun issuing similar letters.
  7. i do love the way they squirm around things by saying that even though an aggreement does not exist this does not make the debt void. lol.its just another waying of saying that it doesnt matter and still pay up lol.
  8. ignore it and send another account in dispute letter.
  9. you need to tell all your family members that are receiving these calls as well exactly what is going on and tell them what you are doing about it. tell them to tell the silly cow to go away and get them to threaten her with police intevention as well. there are laws against this type of behaviour weather she likes it or not.
  10. make a complaint to your local police force on their none emergency number. refuse to be fobbed off by them. they are publicly funded public servants aftertall. take it to a higher level if you are not happy with what they say to you. if they do assist you then they will contact this witches company and warn them off for you.
  11. well in that case they can carry on processing data until the cows come home. i would still have them reported for harrassment and intimidation.they have to stop all that if told to.
  12. the idiots seem to be saying in that letter that will process your data weather you like it or not.or regardless of weather you allowed them to or not. i would deffo consider reporting them and soon have them put in their place.
  13. If they continue to harrass you then consider reporting them them to the sra.the oft and trading standards. whats been said so far is correct.they have no power to extract money out of you.
  14. i do laugh at the way they assume you will stay in all day between 7am and 9pm just to be there when they knock lol
