Judge dismisses ACS:Law file-sharing cases
Interesting to note that, once again, the courts hold a different view from the Law Society/SRA.
Elements of the Law Society took the view that enforcement of the ban on referral fees was unlawful. The ban was upheld by the courts shortly afterwards but by then itt had been abolished.
Now it would appear that the SRA bowed to consumer pressure, notably from a former head of legal at Tesco (that whiter than white firm which sacks people for taking too much time off sick) and started to prosecute persons who sought to enforce the copyright law over file sharing by sending out letters before action.
It is time the SRA stopped "playing politics" and got on with more pressing problems, namely, dealing with the fallout from the coming collapse of the high street.
