£636758.22 £191,027.47 £500,000.00

£636,758.22 is apparently the amount of money ACS Law claim to have made out of hounding broadband subscribers for payment for “alleged” Copyright Infringement.

Based on a commission of 30% £191,027.47 is what the firm would have made out of these unsavoury antics.

£500,000.00 is the fine that ACS Law could be hit with for revealing their victims’ details on their website.

It is easy to see why ACS Law wanted to keep going after its victims. Shed no tears. Feel compassion for the many people whose lives have been affected by ACS Law. I wonder whether the firm will survive.  Their website is down as I write…

Others have written intelligently about ACS Law so there is no point in my regurgitating it.  Broadbandgenie has been close to this one all along – see their commentary here.

  1. cyberdoyle

    the vultures are circling the carrion. live by the sword and die by the sword. Serves them right.

  2. Trefor Davies tref

    I have visions of hundreds of people wearing hoods queuing in a long line to take it in turns to stab them with steely knives

  3. Agree with CyberDoyle and do wonder what the future holds with respect to the DEA – what is the latest status as regards ISP responsibilities?
