Golden Eye International tries to get on the top of stolen material
Monday 03 December 2012 11:09:28 by Andrew Ferguson

While Ofcom is still some way away from issuing its copyright warning letters, the privately run schemes are still going on, and Golden Eye International which is supposedly working on behalf of Ben Dover Productions finally looks set to write to around 2,800 customers of O2/Be.

ISPreview has more on the case, including a sample of a letter that O2/Be are going to send out to customers prior to the any of the Golden Eye letters. Other than some difficult explaining at the evening dinner table as to who Ben Dover Productions are, there is the real chance that households may receive this letter who have never engaged in copyright infringement, this can be down to numerous reasons, but the most difficult to prove is that someone tainted the torrents systems with false data to mask their own activities.

While it is right for a legitimate business to protect its business, pursuing individuals for what are likely to be excessively expensive settlements does little to improve public perception of the film and music industries, and for individual companies may actually do themselves more long term damage.

Intentionally punning headline or have I been reading too many Reg articles again?

It ain't rocket science that by ignoring these low life pornsters and their latest scam that they will give up and try something new, their material quite possibly hasn't even been copied in the 1st place, they are using the same system that Crossley ACS law used to harvest IP's So the evidence is at best unreliable They are no different to acs law davenport & lyons. all are crooks
