UK: Controversy As Letters Go To Alleged Illegal Downloaders [news.bbc.co.uk]
|Mobile firm O2 has stepped into the row over thousands of controversial letters that are being sent to alleged illegal downloaders in the UK. |
It condemned the attempts "by rights holders and their lawyers to bully or threaten our customers".
The row centres around UK law firm ACS:Law and its client DigiProtect, a anti-piracy firm which represents a series of content owners.
ACS: Law denies that its letters are bullying in nature.

My biggest take from that story is make sure your WIFI is secure.
|The firm is in the process of contacting thousands of alleged UK pirates and offers them the chance to settle out of court for around £500 per infringement. |
