Porn providers target UK pirates

Posted at 24 July 2012 22:39 CEST by Wombler

Porn producers ‘Ben Dover Productions’ seem to have got over their recent setback where their previous attempts to serve letters on ISP O2′s customers were rejected by the High Court on the basis that the content of the letters, proposed by their now dismissed law team, was regarded by the Court as overly threatening and unreasonable.

The High Court accepted the right to serve watered down letters but refused permission to demand a one off £700 fine from every infringer saying that each case had to be dealt with on its own individual merits with compensation also being determined individually.

Although intending to originally serve 9,000 letters Ben Dover Productions’ parent company ‘Golden Eye’ will now send out 2,000 letters to some of O2′s unsuspecting customers and won’t rule out the possibility of pursuing other ISP’s customers in the future.

The BBC discusses this story in greater detail here.
