Help Guide - How To Fight Infringement Payment Demands
« on: January 14, 2010, 08:20:22 pm »
This great guide has been produced that details how to avoid being defrauded by disreputable companies that demand payments for so called "copyright infringement", its well worth a read.

This guide was written in the UK by consumer group "BeingThreatened", however I,m sure the same criteria and help details are valid globally.

Just another way for the ¢opyright ant-p2p lawyer$ to scam  people out of their money. They don't care if you're innocent or guilty.

These scam companies rely on accusation and bluff to scare folks into a settlement for what seems in most cases something thgey havent done, so this is in effect a extortion of the gullible public. The company who first pioneered this method in the UK is under investigation by the legal authorities and bailed out of this charade on paper, however they set up a new company under a diff name to continue the same game.
 I,m sure complaints have been made against them once again, these extortionists never seem to know when the games up, but while there is easy meat in the form of consumer ignorance I dont suppose they are in a rush to find honest work.

Lord Lucas blasts ACS LAW and other "anti-piracy" lawyers for putting people into a situation of being faced with an alleged offence whilst not offering them the evidence to defend themselves.

Get such a letter?

Invoke the age-old standard defence, that the accuser must 'Prove Beyond Reasonable Doubt'

And remember, in any civilised society, the onus of proof lies on the accuser, but it must be conclusive and irrefutable proof...

That particular burden of proof only applies in criminal cases unfortunately Bluey, in a civil case as copyright infringements are (at least in the UK) the bar is set at  a much lower level, juries are told to decide the case based on "a balance of probabilities" , this is often how cases make the news when common sense is not part of the decision making process but who has the most convincing lawyer is.
