Ok a mate of mine has just had one of these letters all edging x y and z. 
 

Its very interesting that he doesn’t use nor has ever used the software yet they have by all accounts sent him a letter saying we have x amount of IP addresses and these Mac addresses, he is pretty computer savvy and checked them blocked all this Mac addresses that could have accessed the networks

 

now could someone explain how with an IP address and a MAC address they could possibly try and pin this on him.

Yeah of all the places it’s odd that this is where they all are

 

I suggested he says send me your proof, doesn’t seem like they want to , pretty sure he has a cast iron defence but hes a bit of a worrier I think

 

then when they provide no proof he bill them for his time then sue them for defamation of his good character.

Hi surely if they have a good hand they will be confident of getting a good positive claim in? 
 

it’s almost as if they want to keep their cards closed , though I’m pretty sure they have to outline all the evidence they have which amounts to an IP address 10 Mac addresses and the fact it was used at weekends or evenings which is implausible for starters

 

just out of interest how comparable is this to ACS law?

virtually the same as acs.

all the software does is harvests details on the PC upon installation

and then tries to embarrass people into paying.

 

forget about them totally

Aww I love crap like this though it almost makes me want to go all social justice warrior and see that my mate can get out of it for the aggro and stress , 

 

it kind of feels like these clowns can just run round making spurious allegations and get away with it .

The point is that some people think they can add "free" software to their computers, which has saved them $$$$.

 

The communications and subsequent online forum posts act as a warning that using software without paying for the licence will lead to demands being received to pay the amount. 

 

In most cases people are going to at least stop using the software, even if they do not pay anything.  It would be pretty silly to continue using software, if the usage is being tracked. 

 

 

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

It seems this company have made out they got some massive contract with DSSW now obviously there’s 5 or 6 posts here which pretty much is all you can find on the www with the exception of the few cases stateside , which doesn’t really tally up unless they’re prosecuting the supposed hundreds of people they claim are infringing their clients copyright in their blurb or maybe everyone settles beforehand using the mediation

 

my question I suppose knowing the guy , knowing what he does for a living , and the fact that unless he’s taken on 10 designers and moved into engineering , which he hasn’t is how they manage to put two and two together despite him basically telling them and it being very easy to prove in court that he has never or ever had a need for their software ,any reasonable person would probably say this is pretty implausible , to just basically try and bully a guy because they have someone’s IP address and MAC address
