Internet firms in file sharing deal

Six of the UK's biggest net providers have agreed a plan with the music industry to tackle piracy online.

The deal, negotiated by the government, will see hundreds of thousands of letters sent to net users suspected of illegally sharing music.

Hard core file-sharers could see their broadband connections slowed, under measures proposed by the UK government.

Waynkers

This doesn't just apply to music

I wouldn't say he's a heavy user. But he regularly downloads. He's with virgin media (20 mbit). They took his IP from a torrent of the game 'two worlds'.

I have the letter...hold on I'll just get it.

Thanks for "sharing" (pardon the pun) this Benny. So cut along story short they are going after your mate for between 600 - 1000.

Damn, damn and double damn. I'm gonna check my ISP's terms and conditions. However, looking at this letter it seems that they approached Virgin Media, explained what was going on and they released the name and address etc of your mate for Davenport Lyons to prosecute.

Again... Waynkers!!!

Yeah that's correct, that's also around the same price they are going after many other people. 4 people have successfully been prosecuted so far. Mainly because they didn't defend themselves. But I've made it very clear to him nobody can prove it was him that downloaded it. There are currently 5 other people living with him. 2 others with laptops. It was him btw p but I'm just saying so they have to prove it was him. It's just scare tactics to get people to pay up.

you shouldn't post such things, once something is on the internet it potentially stays there forever - wouldn't want there "Cyber IT Forensic Experts" reading this!

UK, Wednesday August 20, 2008

Thousands of gamers who have shared files illegally online are about to get a nasty surprise through the post - a fine for hundreds of pounds.

The makers behind popular games such as The Lord Of The Rings and the Colin McRae rally series are set to serve 25,000 people with the legal notices.

The families targeted must then pay 300 to settle out of court or face the possibility of a trial.

They are accused of sharing games by top makers Atari, Codemasters, Topware Interactive, Reality Pump and Techland, illegally.

Roger Billens from the law firm leading the action, Davenport Lyons, said his clients were "incensed" by the large numbers of file-sharers.

"In the first 14 days since Topware Interactive released Dream Pinball 3D it sold 800 legitimate copies but was illegally downloaded 12,000 times. Hopefully people will think twice if they risk being taken to court," he said.

Partner David Gore blamed faster internet download speeds for the problem and said it results in "millions of pounds of losses to copyright owners".

The scale of the crackdown dwarfs the efforts made by the UK music business against illegal downloaders as they have reportedly launched action against just 150 people in the last decade.

LoL, scare tactics! they can't prove they downloaded the game. All they can prove is their internet connection was used. Anyone could have downloaded it or it was stolen from their wireless router. Like they are going to take 25,000 people to court

Well, it's all bullsh!t really. Clearly the likes of Peter Mangell-son stepping up and saying Digital Britain (2012) has to come quicker and be brought forward really makes me laff.
Corrupt muther fudders like him and our government as a whole doing deals with Libya etc etc can go take a running jump. PR!CKS.

Bring on the Gen Election I say.

For those that haven't already.... it's all about Usenet
