O2 CENSORS “Golden Eye International” Debate from its Forums

This link is the only fragment left of a thread that was started on The  O2 Forums.  I joined the thread and posted a total of 5 posts (31/03_2012), engaging with the board users  “Perksie” “Brownie” and “O2MACH”

I don’t believe I was rude in any way.  I pointed out that I believed that O2 did NOT fight for their customers and I used the published Judgement to prove the points that I made.

In a covering letter dated 20 September 2011 Golden Eye stated:

“We are the First Applicant and act for the Second – Fourteenth Applicants in this application.

It may be somewhat unusual for the Applicants to apply on their account. However, there has recently been a certain amount of publicity associated with this type of claim (ACS Law; Davenport Lyons). We therefore believe that we will be best served acting for ourselves.”

The letter went on to request that the claim be considered on paper, and enclosed a copy of the skeleton argument which had prepared by counsel instructed on its behalf on the application against BT.

On 7 October 2011 Baker & McKenzie filed an acknowledgement of service on behalf of O2 stating that O2 did not intend to contest the claim.

I pointed out that it was strange that O2 were the only ISPs targeted by “Golden eye International” and further pointed out that PlusNet have been very robust since their experience with ACS:LAW and have come out on their own forums and said, they will resist a Norwich Pharmacal Hearing that would allow a company to have access to their Customers private information.

It seems O2 did not like this dose of truth. I have tried to contact O2 but have had NO REPLY

Their seems to be a media output on their behalf of “O2 had no choice” and “O2 FORCED to hand over customer details.  Both of these IMHO are false. 

O2 DID have a choice, they could have said NO.

“Golden Eye International” Commercial director Julian Becker has already stated in a rather laughable response to the Published Judgement that they use the SAME software that ACS:LAW used (Par 10),

This was blown out of the water at a previous hearing by Judge Birss who presiding over the ACS:LAW/Media C.A.T debacle (That used the same software to monitor) he stated.

“Assuming a case in MediaCATs favour that the IP Address is indeed limited to wholesale infringements of the copyright in question… MediaCAT do not know who did it, and know that they do not know who did it”

Further to my point of O2 HAVING a choice to say NO, I include the communication between O2 and ACS:LAW that quite clearly shows, they could have said no then, but merely asked ACS:LAW to change some of the legal arguments to suit them better.

 If “Perksie”, “Browni” or “O2MACH2” would like to continue our discussion, they are more than welcome to do so here..

UPDATE 1: From O2 ..

@acs_law_illegal Hi there, we’ve just moved to a new forum and only moved over the busiest topics

Hmmmm oh Reeeeaaaalllly

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

    O2 are scared that customers will find out they are collaborating with a bunch of crooks out to scare people into handing over cash. Their fear is probably well-founded because many will leave O2 when they find out the extent of their collaboration in customers misery.

    If, after the fiasco of ACS Law, my ISP rolled over like 02, I would leave them.
