German firm demanding money for downloading porn


by David Allen

A German law firm is contacting some customers of UK internet service providers.

They are then accusing them of downloading hardcore porn and demanding that they pay up or face going to court, even though the customers have no idea about the downloading of films.

The customers are getting twenty page legal letters from DigiProject based in Germany who, following the work of Davenport Lyons the UK legal firm, has been contacting UK internet users with regards to illegally downloaded material.

But in this case the customers’ addresses have been released by their ISPs because DigiProject has obtained a court order. Their letter demands £503 or a legal case.

Nevertheless, because they are accused of downloading hardcore porn, the publicity of a court case is the leverage to make them pay up and make it go away.
