London’s High Court yesterday helped Golden Eye International, a firm that holds numerous film copyrights and is linked to the UK’s Ben Dover porn brand, to finalise the format of its controversial P2P internet piracy settlement letters.

Media law group Wiggin has released its latest annual 2012 Digital Entertainment Survey, which conducted an online survey of 2,500 UK respondents (“representative of the national demographic“) and discovered how 53% agreed that the internet “requires more regulation” to prevent broadband ISP customers from “downloading unauthorised content“.

A new study conducted by Sweden’s Lund University (Cybernorms.net) has revealed that 40% more 15 to 25-year-olds are now “hiding their activities online” than in 2009, such as by using services like Virtual Private Networking (VPN), and often as a means to avoid the increasing crackdown against internet piracy and unlawful file sharing.

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 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.
