Cheers Michael - It appears I am not on the list. :) One question tho - this list seems to be exclusively about porn films : I was accused of downloading a song - Is this list exhaustive ?

again - thanks for the link !

I'm not on there (virgin customer) but 100s of my neighbours are accused of downloading porn. Bloody ridiculous! This "business model" has got to be outlawed, and the comapanies/persons who use it put our of business and struck off.

They sell plenty of flasher macs around your way then or people leave their wireless connections open without any protection.

 

What I can't understand is that there are millions of porno vids online (so I am told):smile:, so why share stuff that is probably already out there.

 

I have a feeling that a lot of material is placed deliberately online, with a view to taking actions over copyright. If this is the case, I don't blame the legal people for pursuing, but the people behind this. I suspect that similar to music CD sales, sales of porn CD's/vids have dropped, because of internet availability. So how do you go about getting your money back from the costs of producing these products. This sounds more like a new business model, than an issue of copyright.

 

Obviously allegations have to be proven, but I come to the conclusion that there is more to this story, than has so far been revealed.

We could do with some help from you.

As mentioned elsewhere there is another list now, with 8000+ names on it, every single one of these those relates to a single song "Evacuate The Dancefloor", no doubt its a pile of crap :)

By share they mean 'have available on your P2P client', when you download anything you are also sharing it, that is how P2P works, when it has finished doanloaded you can either leave it running in your P2P client and thus carry on sharing it or remove it and stop sharing it.

 

The reason why ACS have accussed people of 'making it available' for downloading is purely financial, as is clear from their leaked emails.

 

..and yes, you may well be correct about items being placed on their deliberatly as a trap, this especially applies to poor selling music and porn, in all honesty would someone actually PAY for a Scooter song or a second rate MOS compilation ?

(IN response to putting the 'list' on Wikileaks)....I'm not sure that giving the spreadsheets a wider audience is a good idea, they do have the ability to cause much embrassment to people, I find the emails to/from Crossley and his clients and staff far more interesting, just come across one from a new member of staff who has complained that she has only just started her legal career (at ACS) and does NOT want to named or involved in SRA action, and quite rightly so !

all you have to do is type in your postcode to see if your name appears & what you are alleged to have downloaded...

Now blocked:

 

Google appear to have blacklisted the API keys which I use to perform postcode searches.

As a consequence, this site no longer works. It probably won't be coming back.

Thanks for all the interest anyway. We had a good 24 hours. See you next time something fun happens.

I have had a letter from a company called "Goldeneye international" claiming that they have my details as i have illegally downloaded a movie. My ISP is Sky, they confirm that they have given my details to Goldeneye as they obtained a court order. Goldeneye are now demanding £700 to settle out of court. Has anyone heard of the company Goldeneye International and are they a genuine company that i should pay?

Re goldeneye - according to Wikki they were the rights holder who TBI (Tilly Bailey Irvine) solicitors represented until they withdrew from the speculative invoicing last march. Perhaps they are now approaching people directly ?

GavinWales - dont pay anything - have a good read of this forum and then decide !

"If you are reading this, then more than likely you have infringed our rights already." How do they work that one out? This must be up there with "valid even if not read by you." Or you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't.

Maybe they're harvesting IP addresses from that site? I look forward to one of their missives. ;)

Checked the list and I am def on it - Any legal ppl on here to advise what I should do next?

 

Tut tut..naghty boy..what you been watching ?..hee..I'd sit tight for a while, no doubt there will be many people contemplating action, actually i wouldnt be suprsied if an (enterprsing ?) solicitor did a bulk email to everyone on the list and ask if they wanted to purue a (joint) action against ACS Law.

 

And to think Mr Crossly described the scenario as like waiting 10 mins for a train or coffee..ha..idiot..this is going to wreck your career ..fool :)
