Those are the *leaked* (read;hacked) emails from ACS:Law, the UK law firm that works for all those big copyright guys, you know, the ones suing file sharers and putting people in jail for copying music or movies.

Yeah, I finally get what you were talking about now. The Information Commissioner said that they could be fined up to half a million pounds for the breach.

All I can say is I pity the NSA worker who is assigned to sifting through all of my posts.

oops, wrong thread I see, sorry. I thought this was the one where NSA was mentioned. Now I have to go hunting for the damned thing.. well you know what I say? To heck with it, the words are laid. I'll not be editing nothing neither.

Jeezus I'd be surprised if 95 % of the online population weren't criminals in some cyberrespect.

Better soak up the old wild frontier rays while they last, sorta like make hay while the sun shines. I envision future generations will only further mold to the ways of capitalism.

That ship is obviously an optical illusion of some sort, but I can't place it.

There is a cassette tape on one of the sails... probably something against the RIAA...

The cassette is pretty obvious but the eyes formed by the area between the mainsails and the tops'ls made me think there was more to it.

Law firm ACS: Law stops 'chasing illegal file-sharers' (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12253746)


A lawyer has dramatically withdrawn from pursuing alleged illegal file-sharers in the middle of a court case he brought.

The patent court in London is currently scrutinising 26 cases brought by ACS: Law on behalf of its client MediaCAT.

The law firm had sent thousands of letters to alleged file-sharers.

Those who received such letters may pursue ACS: Law for harrassment, said law firm Ralli, which represents some of the defendants.

In a statement read to the court, solicitor Andrew Crossley said he had now ceased all such work.

He cited criminal attacks and bomb threats as reasons.

"I have ceased my work...I have been subject to criminal attack. My e-mails have been hacked. I have had death threats and bomb threats," he said in the statement, read to the court by MediaCAT's barrister Tim Ludbrook.

"It has caused immense hassle to me and my family," he added.
