ACS:LAW to Hit the Cannes Film Festival! In search of crap films to extort money from

Or “The Trough is dry so we will talk to people who have NO idea that we have NO good reputation”

ACSLAW to Hit the Cannes Film Festival!  Wow exciting times, Andrew Crossley must have made a LOT of money to weasel his way there. 

The chances of this idiot of course being thrown out of Cannes is quite high. NO respected Film Producer or production house is going to give him a second look.  Who will? Well films that are crap and that no one wants to watch. 

Who is Crossley working with regarding his “colleagues based in Europe and the United States”? Well if I had to hazard a guess at what smells the same in the US as this Crap in the UK it would have to be the “US Copyright Group” who has on its client list such films as “Steam Experiment,” “Far Cry,” “Uncross the Stars,” “Gray Man,” or “Call of the Wild 3D.” never heard of them? Well like I said that is because they are CRAP and don’t deserve to earn any money (Don’t believe me? Check out IMDB or the name of Far Cry Director “Uwe Boll”).  This is where the TRUE reasoning behind the “creating a revenue stream and monetizing the equivalent of an alternative distribution channel.” as US Copyright Group Lawyer Jeffrey Weaver recently commented, comes from.

You pick a game or a film or music, that is basically CRAP and does not sell much, rather than saying “Hey it’s a piece of Crap” they say, “the reason it has not sold is that people have copied it for free”.    They BUY the rights for P2P distribution of these AWFUL titles and then ANY IP that is caught in a SWARM is targeted, spoofed or not, they don’t care.  It is ALL money to them.  AVATAR of course did VERY bad at the Box Office because of all the free downloads!

Of course don’t fool yourself that this is actually JUSTICE, if there was ANY chance of it going to Court the actual claim would be DROPPED, see they don’t want a fight, OH NO they want to SCARE people into THINKING they will be taken to Court.  Don’t believe me? Ok, go find ALL the people that ACS LAW, Davenport Lyons or Tilly Bailey & Irvine have ACTUALLY prosecuted. Oh and Isabella Barwinska DOES NOT COUNT.  Go on, and please IF you do find someone please please email me, I will be VERY surprised.

 Oh and one last point, considering it was claimed that Isabella Barwinska was the FIRST person Prosecuted for file sharing in the UK, you could also go and see if you can find me a photo or any other info on this lady.

So I hope someone in Cannes spots this fat balding charlatan and takes some pics of him and his sidekick Terence.  You know where to send them…..

About Hickster

I am one of the many innocent people who have been accused of file sharing by Copyright Trolls, my letter came from the now infamous ACS:LAW, but they have now been emulated by many more using the same system. Their ruse is simple, Send out letters of claim with NO Real evidence beyond an IP address that they claim was captured using a frowned upon hack of Shareaza. My REAL opinion of these companies turned when they started sending out Pornography claims, THAT is what I find most disturbing. People who HAVE to pay up without the option of having their day in Court. THAT is NOT Justice. Why can't they just go to Court? because the Lawyers, pitch the price of paying the "Compensation" at about the same rate as hiring a lawyer to fight it. Things have changed in the last 8 years though. I would advise people to read the "Speculative Invoicing Handbook Part 2", research these people yourselves, and find me at Slyck Forums, or on Twitter. Do NOT Worry, Stand Strong

  1. This does raise a series of questions:

    1) Does Isabella actually exist?
    2) Did she appear in court, or was the verdict handed down in her absence?
    3) Did Isabella pay the fine?
    4) Or was Isabella a setup?

    Now it’s quite possible that Isabella is a real person, and she did pay the fine levied against her. However if the newspaper articles are accurate she wasn’t able to, in fact them impression I got was that she wasn’t able to afford a solicitor.

    Pardon me, but this looks a lot like a setup, and it needs some research done on it.

    • Thankyou for commenting. Popular thinking is that Isabella Barwinska was from Leytonstone, east London, she DID not attend Court and the Fine was what is known as a Default Judgement. I am guessing that she went abroad BEFORE the Court Case, however, NONE of this is really important as you would have thought there would be some Photo, or interview, or some friend speaking out, but beyond the Davenport Lyons press release that was reprinted by ALL the mainstream Media there is NOTHING. You are right, this does need to be looked at, as this is the ONLY case that is known of a file sharer being fined in court, but that was because she was not there to defend herself.

      Of course the Davenport Lyons pair who released the information are now awaiting an SRA Disciplinary panel. So hardly trutworthy are they…

  2. What i do not understood is in fact how you’re now not really much more well-liked than you might be now. You are very intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this topic, produced me individually imagine it from so many numerous angles. Its like men and women aren’t interested until it’s something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always maintain it up!
