I dont know if many of you have been following the ACS-Law scandal here in the UK. Here is a link:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-11418962
I don't use torrent sites or any P2P. I am just curious how these companies are operating?
Are they taking IP addresses from the torrent trackers? or do they have an army of people using these programs and recording IP address connections?
Just seems a bit ridiculous that they are allowed to make profit this way, basically I doubt they can prove in court that someone has broken the law from the evidence collected (are users legally responsible for everything attributed to their IP add?) and they are trying to make money by scaremongering people. I mean, it is an interesting choice of copyright material they went for...
