Date of issue – 14 june 2024 date for aos - 2nd july  date to file defence - 16th july      other than the CCA/CRP and if it ever gets that far..a witness statement, you send them NOTHING and dont ever instigate comms with them. esp by email.. i would be sending one final email in reply to theirs above. PLEASE NOTE: email is NOT to be used for any comms with regard to our mutual court claim. else they'll be sending a whole forest of faked agreements/documents to you one minute before a court deadline removing your shace to object/pull them apart as unenforceable etc. dx

    • Unbelievably I can't find it, I will have a really good look for it when I have a bit more time on my day off this week. AS a side note, I emailed them offering a token payment to settle the account and avoid court action, which unsurprisingly they have declined. However their reply states:  A Claim was accepted on 19 June 2024 which means we cannot set up a payment plan just yet. You should have received a claims pack from the Court. We would ask for this to be completed with your offer of repayment and returned to either ourselves or the Court.  You have 21 days for this to be completed and returned in order to avoid a Judgment by Default. This means we would need to receive this by 10 July 2024. I was under the impression it was 19 days from date on the claim form. which was the 14th, which would be 3rd July. Could I use this against them as it seems like they are giving me false information in the hope of getting a judgement by default?

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Using VPN just makes it more difficult to identify IP and network.

 

Depends on how determined anyone is with carrying out tracing.

 

Advice must be to not take the risk of doing anything, without weighing up the potential cost.

We could do with some help from you.

Yay DX!!! glad you showed up.

 

Lets say its a little more complicated when they open a case with your employer first.

 

Wish I had the option to take your advice as its surely what I would have done.

I am also US and yes i know this is UK forum

but you guys got the most threads for this. 

 

Thanks DX, i like your attitude, your my fav commenter here. 

 

So simple all the stuff they can do, lol

 

Why is US even better you think?

 

So here is my story in summary. Can use support/feedback

 

My story is a little more complicated then the other posters here.

Seems I may have logged into my email on a computer somewhere with an allegedly pirated copy. 

they get my work email from the registry and see the domain.

They then open a case with my company.

Long story short they close the case with my employer and open one for me.

 

Then a month later I get a a letter, and some emails. 

I ignored weeks passed,

they email a second letter with a 5 day response dead line stating they are ready to sue if not resolved immediately (have not seen it in physical mail yet), and emails from lawyers, license investigator, and phone call from law-firm.

 

I email the investigator to notify them that the mac address does not match any of my computers.

He then reply with an email from my company stating that I use solid-works for personal use. 

 

Then I emailed explaining that i thought I was being interviewed for a promotion and wanted to embellish my solid works experience. And that i have no money ...  

 

that was 6 days ago have not heard back since. 

 

Ugh so what do you think DX all BS?

UK Courts and case precedents make process easier than in many countries including US. I should imagine issuing a Court claim and going through whole process in US would be pretty expensive.

 

You should not have emailed them explaining any use of their software.  If you have admitted using their software without having paid for it, then you may have given them evidence which is helpful to them, if they did issue a Court claim. They will have the data from some of your use of their software and now have your email explaining usage.

 

If your use of their software was limited to just trying it and you did not use it for any projects, then you can probably just do nothing, as they won't incur cost in suing you.  If, however, you used their software many times over a period including use in project work, then it is possible they have data showing this usage.

 

Wait to see how they reply to your email.

So in have heard back from them recently.

 

I know some pppl here have settled for a license. And i would like to know if you buy the license would i be able to resell it to my friend who wants a solid works license any way? Or is there some stipulation that it has to be used by you?

Don't believe you can resell licence without permission of the company that sold the licence and set the conditions of the licence.

 

Yes normally stipulation is licence is only for use of purchaser.

DX i believe my situation is a bit different as it involves employer. I wish i could ignore but i think it is to late for that.

Spoke to lawyer today and he seems to think the attached complaint is similar enough To warrant a possible suit. 

And that I should settle or risk job loss. 

 

There are some differences like they have network info and company owner saying he had account when he diffident 

 

if i buy a license i have a friend who has agreed to pay me for it ...

sorry didn't see the date of that example...19mts old.

 

i understand litigation is so much easier in your country

they wouldn't pull that stoke here .

 

thats a general catch-all claim, but to me it reads the company was knowingly using pirate software

your case is diff and your 'use' was solely personal , nothing to do with your employment but on a works PC?

Not on a works PC but allegedly logged into a PC with work email. They have not provided any IP that explicitly identifies me by my ISP. 

They contacted employer like 2 months ago using the domain name of this email scraped from system registry. 

 

My company also uses solidworks in other divisions which complicates things

no but your employer has id'd you, and you have contacted them stating you were using the software.

 

if that were to happen in the UK
regardless of not specifically being able to trace the PC it was on because of a VPN, 

their claim IMHO would hold water.

but not the same 'division' you are employed in?

 

i can only go by my UK experience

- we had several sites using AUTOCAD, we held one site licence under the company name registered at our head office that covered XXXX number of machines over all our sites , as long as we didn't exceed the number of 'machines' using the software at any one time anyone inc employees could run it even on pers PC's

maybe not

but your company might hold a site licence that most probably covers you as a paid employee,

regardless to usage not being 'part of your job'

you are paid by xxx employer

xx employer holds a licence.

so lets over view the actual situation here shall we....

 

you installed a piece of solidworks software on a personal PC because knowing the software would improve your chances of promotion within your employer because they use it and thats where you naturally want to go.  UP 

 

the well known fleecers , we call them ambulance chasers here, contacted your employer as a scan showed a 'link' to them for a unlicensed installation.

 

your employer gave them relevant information that sufficiently identified you as the culprit.

the fleecers then contacted you

you contacted them and to all intent confessed.

 

now in my old employment position (software and network manager ),  if an employee came to me with this problem i'd simply state they have permission under our licence to do so...bugger off.

I see but instead employer threw me under buss 

 

So do you think they would settle for a solid-works standard with out subscription for like 4k in quarterly payments for a year?

ask the right person to authorise your usage.

That is definitely another solution.

 

Speak to your manager to see if they can include you on the licence they hold for the software. Explain that you are facing paying $4000 for the Solidworks usage, while you were trying to update skills. 

We could do with some help from you.
