Well HHJ Colin Birss put paid to that ever happening due to the fact he told their predecessor's AJ Crossley, (Tezimondo) Tsang, Bowden, Miller(The proud architect of this Cock-up) et al in open court that;

"They have no evidence of who committed an offence and they know it"

or words to that effect where upon the failed Crossley et al tried to back out of his unsubstantiated claims. He couldn't so he clammed-up and suffered the well deserved consequences.
Nevertheless it seems that the current "Solicitors" don't have "Law degrees" or indeed never likely to obtain such.

BTW, welcome to the forum of dedicated "Troll basher's" extraordinaire.

Interestingly, when we exposed the trolls involved in the March 2012 NPO, we purposely omitted Terence Stephens (a.k.a. One Eyed Jack) from our expose. At the time, we were in correspondence with Terence and engaged in expressing each others views. We felt at the time that we wouldn't "dig the dirt" on Terence.

Obviously now we have seen from Terence that he has no worry or mercy intimidating letter receivers on this thread with no problem in targeting the innocent, despite as Stressed says that Judge Birss outwardly said that innocents will be targeted.

Probably now Terence wouldn't give a damn of that gesture we did. He probably would argue that he had nothing to hide, or has no remorse of any actions he may have done in his past.

The fact is we did such a gesture.

I understand your sentiments stressed, but obviously he was one of the so called "rights holders" trading as his "professional" name back in 2012. Hope his tax returns were legit.

Since then, Mr Terence Stephens hasn't used the services of GEIL, despite singing the praises of GEIL and being their no.1 fanboy.

It's my opinion, and maybe misguided, that if you are so forceful in your positive views of GEIL that you are prepared to go on public forums and publicly tweet your support, it would make sense to actually use GEILs services.

You know, actually take actions to back up your convictions.

I could force an opinion of supporting what I feel as a worthy cause which I feel effects me personally, but not actually using such a cause would make me a hypocrite.

My honest opinion of Mr Terence Stephens is knowing that he agreed to use GEILs services because they would represent him for free. Mr Terence Stephens admitted it on a public forum with the words "Sign me up!". This was before GEIL used Mr Terence Stephens for their own purpose of intimidating LoC receivers.

Five years after Mr Terence Stephens used GEIL, he hasn't since. This is despite Mr Terence Stephens many times complaining that "his shit" is being "stolen" by p2p.

Nobody needs to "dig the dirt" on Mr Terence Stephens. We don't need to. Mr Terence Stephens speaks for himself.

Just like Mr Robert Croucher, and where is he now?

I wish to point out a failure of observation from us copyright troll observers.

A snippet from Golden Eye International Ltd website as of now below:

Image

This Wayback Machine link is the last GEIL website snapshot that has the link "Your Case" which was back in October 2015:

Image

All other Wayback Machine snapshots after October 2015 do not have the "Your Case" link.

I remember back in October 2015 that GEIL were in the process of sending out their letters of claim and suggesting to the victims to go to their website.

The next Wayback Machine snapshot of GEILs website was January 2016 which does not have the "Your Case" link.

Intriguing!

What I can say is you can directly access the "Your Case" link now, as can be seen from the snapshot below:

Hi just registered but have been following this since dream pinball !
Never had a letter but have moved from ISP's when they have rolled over.

<link removed>

People in the UK will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.

Websites will be legally required to install age verification controls by April 2018 as part of a move to make the internet safer for children.

Now since they have a licence for distribution via P2P I really hope they will need to implement this :lol: :lol:

Hi to any Admin or Moderator

Please remove the scumbag HGW link above. I would ask to preserve the post to show that this scumbag made an attempt to trick innocent people into downloading a virus.

The link is "hxxp" not "http", and has a download to what no doubt will be a malevolent virus or malware.

I guess (And hope I am wrong) that the copyright trolls have escalated the war. We have a newly registered poster trying to sympathise with the viewers of this thread, and planting a link to what will no doubt be a spyware program.

Anyone who has clicked on the link provided by HGW and agreed to install the program please run a full scan from your antivirus program, or if you don't have an antivirus program installed, install one now

Click on the links below to run a free online antivirus scan if you are unsure:

https://www.f-secure.com/en_GB/web/home_gb/online-scanner
https://www.eset.com/uk/home/online-scanner/

Quick google of HGW has a meaning of "Hot Girls Wanted".

I have said before to those accused of these low life accusations to expect an escalation in tactics. OMG! I never expected this!

The link should have been to the BBC news website.
Cut and paste from Firefox ( I may have edited the tt to xx but can't remeber doing so )
On my PC ( have just checked it with malwarebytes free - no threats ) changing "tt" "xx" still links me to the BBC website
"UK plans age verification for porn websites from 2018" is the title of the BBC page
I was trying to help as no one had posted it.
The age verification the UK is bringing in may still be problematic for the "P2P lenience"

HGW can mean a lot of things on google and the urban dictionary


Since I have not got off to good start can a mod please delete my account

@HGW

Probably good for me to apologise. Sorry!

Very jumpy! Had so many experiences of tactics displayed by the trolls both on this thread and elsewhere.

I honestly did have a pop-up asking to install a program when I clicked your link. I cancelled and tried many times. Seeing "hxxp" instead of "http" was a major concern, and researching the use of "hxxp" shown me that this is used as a means of delivering malicious programs to an unsuspecting victim.

I reserve "scumbag" for copyright trolls. That is why I used the adjective against you. I had an immediate concern of a possible escalation of tactics from scumbag trolls. I seen it as very possible because if a victim on this thread had been infected with malware, it would give the trolls a chance to "control" a victims computer.

I have managed in the past to recognise certain tactics by the trolls, and I figured I recognised a tactic now.

I guess I got this one wrong! Although I don't have the understanding why when I clicked your link, it asked to install a program.

I will say though that I again apologise for my action, accusation and choice of a description of you.

I will add to that to say that it could have been a possibility of copyright trolls escalating the war to try and infect not just the innocent people who read this thread, but those who try to help those accused.

If anything, it possibly raises the "alert status" to everyone to be very careful. It doesn't hurt for everyone to check your computer just in case.

Although I do not at all condone the act of downloading by BitTorrent, whether copyright or non-copyright, you do run the very high risk of downloading malware/viruses.

One last thing HGW. You are absolutely right that HGW can mean many things. I can add to it by saying Honestly Got (it) Wrong!

I hope you keep your slyck account and re-visit. And with that, re-post.

The last thing I wanted to do was upset you or Hickster as I am well aware of the good work you have done to educate people who have been scammed by copyright trolls.
I may have changed it to xx ( hxxp has no protocol but is often used to get round forums / chat rooms that don't allow links, or limit those who can post them ) in hind site using xx was not the best of ideas.
As for the download I am just as perplexed ( hence why I checked my PC )
I have been a long time reader of slyck ( since the Suprnova days ) but never had much to contribute, but checking it most days.

Thanks for the kind words HGW regarding Hickster and me, although I probably hindered myself a bit!

Just so you know, the message I had when clicking on the link is below. This popped up on immediately clicking the link from your post.

Image

I hope it can be seen as a misunderstanding on my part, and my reaction was in thought of more than just myself.

I hope it can be seen also as rather amusing now that you wait all that time observing the forum and this thread and then just when you decide to post something, I jump down your throat!

At least I made it a memorable post! :wink:

Apologies again HGW, and apologies also to Fred for over-reacting somewhat and causing concern when there wasn't any.

bpaw

BTW, to the trolls watching: I use IE11 for general browsing and slyck.com on one computer, whilst I use another computer with vpn and another more protective browser for troll hunting. Just mentioning because I have visited your troll websites which no doubt log IP activity, so yes you may get one visitor from Holland or some other Country every now and again

Thanks HGW, and thanks for the DMs.

You are very observant about the age verification link you did mean to post. I have observed the "industry" for a while, and seen their objections to this new law.

I clicked your link because I was going to comment on it!

Just as a quick point though, I had in my mind a scenario where the (c) trolls may use malware or virus tactics. I jokingly posted a joke about it previously about the "wannycry" ransom ware. What I say is I already had in my mind that the trolls may adopt such tactics. When I seen the pop-up on my pc, it justified my worry.

Our DMs HGW show me you are a straight up trustworthy person, and I thank you.

The situation with the age verification for adult websites is completely stupid and absurd. Anyone wishing to access an adult website will have to provide credit card details.

This is websites which exist to provide adult material. Youngsters can easily get their parents credit card details and register. Once the credit card details are registered, those details are stored in a database which is at risk from hackers.

More freely available adult (And very adult) material can be accessed by under 18 year olds way beyond the scope of this absurd law.

Any website that doesn't conform to the age verification rules will be blocked.

If a website may relate to sex education and doesn't conform to the new age verification, it may be blocked.

I say the new law that seems it will be applied from April 2018 is absolutely bizarre and stupid.

What I will say to the adult industry is tough shit. Who gives a f*ck.

Awwww, the Law upsets me!!!! The Law is unfair!!!!

Just like Norwich Pharmacal Orders. Just like BitTorrent Monitoring. Just like Lawyers who issue Court proceedings and then withdraw when a defence is offered. Just like Golden Eye International Limited will never issue Court Proceedings.

To the trolls, the Law is fair when you use sh!t IP monitoring, but the Law is unfair for you when you say so.

Welcome to our world.

Computer Misuse Act 1990 - I would hope would make the virus/malware illegal ( when has that ever stopped them )

cut and pasted from online doc :-

F13 Unauthorised acts with intent to impair, or with recklessness as to impairing, operation of computer, etc.
(1)A person is guilty of an offence if—
(a)he does any unauthorised act in relation to a computer;
(b)at the time when he does the act he knows that it is unauthorised; and
(c)either subsection (2) or subsection (3) below applies.
(2)This subsection applies if the person intends by doing the act—
(a)to impair the operation of any computer;
(b)to prevent or hinder access to any program or data held in any computer; [F2or]
(c)to impair the operation of any such program or the reliability of any such data; [F3or
(d)to enable any of the things mentioned in paragraphs (a) to (c) above to be done.]]

Hi HGW

Quite an interesting bit of info.

The scary part of (c) trolls is that in the US, Lawyers have contacted next door neighbours of alleged infringers to tell them their neighbour is a "pervert".

Here in the UK, we have said here on this forum not to provide any detail that could possibly provide the trolls any link to who you are.

I was initially concerned with anyone accused who corresponds with the trolls by email. It gives the trolls the opportunity to provide a link which a frightened victim might click on. I thought on further that maybe a troll maybe provide a link on the forum which they wish to plant some control malware on an unsuspecting victim.

What can result is not necessary any wish to control or intend harm, but more a fact finding mission that they will not get from letter correspondence. Their letters are a phishing exercise, which has not been successful when a victim denies their claim.

A malware or virus infection against their victim can provide all sorts of personal details that they can use against their victim without admitting their actions.

Do not trust a troll!

In the US some of the courts are waking up to the fact that an IP address is not a person.
A web proxy can mask you IP to web sites and for the "tin foil hat brigade!" there is TOR and VPN's
A malware or virus infection would only really provide data on future acts not historical (unless the file is on a PC/NAS/Seedbox/printer (lol) ) better money to made with ransomware 19,000,000 in 2 years according to Google "BBC - Ransomware 'here to stay', warns Google study)

I wish to comment on Amy Hughes attempt at breaking the world record for logging 520 miles on a treadmill in seven days.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-40751179

I only bring this to light because Terence Tsang is a Director of Guinness World Records ("GWR") and listed with the Law Society as the "In House Solicitor" for GWR.

I guess for GWR to deny Amy Hughes her record will fall under the jurisdiction of Terence Tsang from a Legal perspective. The denial comes down to a question of evidence, which GWR say her boyfriend was regarded as the official witness and direct acquaintances are discounted by GWR. Yet there were thousands of independent people who witnessed her attempt.

This is the really interesting part. Terence Tsang as a Paralegal of ACS:Law/Cramer Pelmont/Davenport Lyons had no problem defending the actions of these Law firms as regards speculative invoicing with BitTorrent monitoring, but working for GWR requires more scrutiny of evidence.

I really hope that Amy Hughes wins and gains her deserved world record. That will be a smack in the face for Terence Tsang.

Anyone wishing to aid Amy Hughes cause can sign the below petition. Not just because it is right, but also that it will defy the Legal advice GWR were given by Terence Tsang.

https://www.change.org/p/guiness-world-recoward-amy-hughes-53marathons-her-rightful-place-in-the-guiness-world-recordsrds-a

BTW - I can say that if you promote your signing of the petiton with Twitter, Amy will give you a personal thanks.

“The plaintiffs’ goal in these matters is not to reach a judgment on the merits, but rather to secure a dubious settlement with onerous terms that accrue primarily to the benefit of attorneys and other non-parties,” Ranallo alleged. Ranallo also cited litigation filed against Voltage by Dallas Buyers Club LLC, in which the latter stated that it had no knowledge or control over the copyright litigation being carried out in its name.


Voltage Pictures use Guardaley and so do Golden Eye International Ltd.

Hi Everyone

I dealt with these Monkeys last year. I spent 5 weeks practically arguing with them. They claim they have to prove it based on the balance of probability's. I argue that they actually have to prove it was me. It wasn't me, and despite giving them reasonable doubt it wasn't me. (I'm Gay... why would I be downloading straight porn?) They still persuaded it, trying to dismiss anything that cast any doubt on their claim. The emails finished how I figured they would.... They were going to send court documentation.

It never arrived.

Today I get an email from Janet at golden eye... An interesting case from TCYK (their words not mine)... someone settled out of court for £1000. My thoughts... Idiots and doubt it. Honestly, I almost cried I thought I had got rid of these trolls and they are back for round two.

Still never mind, I will roll up my sleeves. We seriously need to do something about these people. We should start a petition or something.

What have they actually said, though? That someone else didn't contest an entirely different case? Without knowing the details of either your situation or the TYCK case they cite, there could be one crucial difference between the two: the person who settled might have actually downloaded the film, while you didn't.

Their method of argument - based on what you've said, at least - is something like this: because Dave from Birmingham pleaded guilty in a mugging case, you're automatically guilty if you're accused of mugging!

Unless their email offers new legal arguments or evidence relevant to your particular situation, it's difficult to see how this is anything other than a blatant attempt at intimidation.
