A lawyer 'antipiracy' Brits withdrew in full view

Andrew Crossley's attorney had informed the trial right in more than 20 Internet users accused of sharing copyrighted works to be removed from the trial. He claims to be victim of death threats. According to the BBC, the representative of the firm ACS: Law, acting on behalf of his client MediaCAT, said in a statement that "I stopped in my work ...

I have been the subject of criminal attacks. My emails have been pirated. And I received death threats and boma "he said. "This has caused huge inconvenience to me and my family." The ACS was the subject company in September of a cyberattack. As a result of the data were exposed persons that the company was targeted because of their adult film downloads.

This leak is being investigated by British authorities on data protection. ACS: Law is dedicated to providing its services to anyone who wants to prosecute Internet users who download works of his property. Send letters to the suspects claim an amount of money or threatens to prosecute.

Consumer associations have reported sending letters to people unrelated to any type of discharge and some access providers have refused to provide data on Internet addresses that request in its action. Rights holders receive 30% of earnings and the law firm gets 60% of the money raised through these actions.

Crossley has been accused of seeking money and not raise the issue before the courts. The lawyer said that he intended to seriously litigate such cases. MediaCAT reported to cease in the pursuit of the accused. The role of ACS: Law is complicated because two of its former employees, on behalf of another law firm, have launched similar lawsuits on behalf of the MediaCAT.
