There is a bad smell that wafted into the lavish offices of ACS:BORE today,(joking, but hey ACS:LAW do that all the time!) as news broke of the impending return of Andrew Crossley from the Cannes Film Festival. Although of course we have no proof he went, (he has claimed before to be a resident of Monaco!!!)
On his website he claims the following
Our time in Cannes proved productive and exciting for us and our clients.
New business relationships have been developed and established, enabling protection from illegal file-sharing on a global basis. A new joint working relationship with US-based attorneys has opened up the North American region to our clients for identification and pursuit of illegal file sharing of their products. ACS Law Solicitors has been able to forge new alliances with copyright owners, monitoring companies and other lawyers, strengthening our position as the pre-eminent law firm in the UK specializing in this rapidly expanding area of law.
We are also working in cooperation with a newly-formed organisation, the United Copyright Group, that provides an holistic solution to illegal file sharing and provides a comprehensive set of tools designed to deter and prevent illegal file sharing. More will be written about this new phase of tackling illegal file sharing in due course.
Now of course this based on previous statements needs to be taken with an amount of salt not conducive to the good health of the average human. However amongst the hyperbole of nonsense one thing seems laughably clear, ACS:LAW have joined forces with the much maligned and mocked US Copyright Group, derided for “copying” ACS:LAWs practice of mass mailing and scaring people into paying up for things they have not done. Indeed the US Copyright Group or as ACS:LAW messed up …… again and referred to them as the “United Copyright Group” are none other than “Dunlap Weaver and Grubb” A group of Solicitors much like Andrew Crossley who rent out offices and try to look BIG.
Now what was that I told you all back BEFORE he went to Cannes? Posted on April 14th https://acsbore.wordpress.com/2010/04/14/acslaw-to-hit-the-cannes-film-festival-in-search-of-crap-films-to-extort-money-from/ Never say they arent Predictable!
