Law firm's piracy hunt condemned
« on: January 29, 2010, 12:40:46 pm »
Music industry representative the BPI has criticised the approach used by a UK law firm in chasing file-sharers.

Law firm ACS:Law has sent thousands of letters to people it claims have downloaded illegal content.

The BPI said it did not condone the approach of mass-mailing alleged internet pirates.

A law firm that represents some of those sent letters has called on the Information Commissioner to investigate the matter.

The BPI said it would not be adopting the same approach as ACS: Law if UK legislation on the issue of illegal file-sharing comes into force.

"We don't favour the approach taken by ACS:Law to tackle illegal file-sharing," said spokesman Adam Liversage.

"Our view is that legal action is best reserved for the most persistent or serious offenders - rather than widely used as a first response," he added.
