Do warning letters help stop piracy? Not if they’re sent to people who aren’t pirating. UK consumer rights organisation Which? says it’s received more than 150 enquiries from people who say they’ve been sent letters by law firm ACS:Law accusing them of online piracy, and inviting them to settle for £500. It’s not just about music, though. “My 78 year old father yesterday received a letter from ACS law demanding £500 for a porn file he is alleged to have downloaded. He doesn’t even know what file sharing or bittorrent is so has certainly not done this himself or given anyone else permission to use his computer to do such a thing,” says one letter to Which?, whose technology editor Matt Bath is calling for ACS:Law to stop sending the letters.
