Thousands of households to get filesharing threat letters

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Lawyers at ACS:Law have been granted court orders to make ISPs hand over the details of customers suspected of sharing hardcore pornography.

It is estimated that around 25,000 BT customers and a further 5,000 customers of other ISPs are involved and they can expect to be receiving a letter within the next couple of weeks.

These letters are in fact demands for cash.

This is a practice introduced by the legal firm Davenport Lyons, but now being used by ACS:Law and the DigiProject.

It is a wonder that this is going ahead, but it is a clever tactic by the law firm to pick out porn, as not many people are likely to stand up and fight the case.
