One of the key people behind Golden Eye International, the firm that claims to hold numerous film copyrights and is linked with the UK’s Ben Dover porn brand, has confirmed that the reason they are pursuing O2’s broadband ISP customers, to settle “suspected” cases of “illegal” internet copyright infringement (piracy), is because it’s “the only way I can make money“.

The MEP responsible for investigating (Rapporteur) the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), David Martin, has officially recommended that the European Parliament (EP) reject the treaty when it comes up for a final vote in June 2012. Martin warned that ACTA could not “guarantee adequate protection for citizens’ rights in the future“.

The controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), an international treaty that seeks to establish a broad new range of copyright enforcement standards and threatens to make broadband internet providers (ISP) more liable for the content they deliver, will officially be put to a final vote by the European Parliament (EP) in June 2012.

The UK High Court (Court 6) in central London today ruled that Golden Eye International, a firm that claims to hold numerous film copyrights and is linked with the UK’s Ben Dover porn brand, can pursue O2’s (Telefonica) broadband ISP customers to settle “suspected” cases of “illegal” internet copyright infringement (piracy). But its victory, which has set a new precedent, came with several crucial strings attached.

Despite the repeated failure of similar schemes, Golden Eye International, a dubious firm that claims to hold numerous film copyrights and is linked with the UK’s Ben Dover porn brand, has today gone to court in an attempt to extract the customer details for around 9,000 internet connections (IP addresses) from ISP O2 UK (Telefonica). If it wins then thousands of users, specifically those whom it accuses of “illegal” online piracy, could expect to receive threat letters (“speculative invoicing“) that demand payments of £700 to settle the offence.

Broadband ISPs BT and the TalkTalk Group have officially lost a second appeal against their demands for a Judicial Review (JR) of the controversial 2010 Digital Economy Act (DEA). The UK providers had claimed that significant chunks of the act, which seeks to identify, warn (letters) and possibly even disconnect (“suspend“) those suspected of “illegal” internet piracy (copyright infringement) from their ISP, were incompatible with EU law.
