additionally I would strongly advise that you don't give them any information as to the source of the file and for the moment ignore them until you hear more. In that case come back to us and tell us what is going on
in addition to the links above, I think that the answer to your main question as to whether you are infringing copyright by using a file which was created by an infringing work the answer is no.
however, you will see what the reputation of the solicitors is in relation to this software company
I have an old debt - it has been statute barred for a couple of years now. OC was Citi, I think, but they doubled my interest rate overnight, even though I was paying faithfully every month, so I decided to stop paying and challenge validity of the contract. They are now referring to it is 'Opus', and not 'Citi' but I was never informed about a change of name or reassignment of the debt.
Anyhoo, Cabot started sending letters - first letter stated I had pad £0.24p and it was now time for me to start paying the rest. This is bollocks. They are also calling me on my mobile - a number they never had, as I've never had calls from them on this before - I changed my number to avoid their calls. They are also texting. The texts are bollocks too - stating things like 'it has been 14 days and you haven't been in touch' - it was only a few days. When they first called me I answered, from the car, and acknowledged who I was - not thinking I needed to be on my guard, as they should not have had my number, and they've been calling and writing since - been about 2 months now. Strangely, it seems that now every single call ALWAYS goes direct to voicemail - with their usual recorded message.
Now they are threatening to send a doorstep collector. I don't mind this - I'll knock him on his back, after pointing out the error of his ways, with respect to The Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973... But, I was wondering if I should just let them crack on and waste their time and money, or if I should just head them off at the pass by sending the statute barred letter...? Or whether I should send a SAR to find out how they got my number...?
Any advice would be greatly received - many thanks in advance.
Who is electable though? Another Blairite? Someone who dresses in a sharp suit, goes through the motions and talks like a robot? Because I don't see any positive change for Labour .. I'll probably go back to voting Green
