FileWatch: Proof that ACS:Law DID NOT and CAN NOT stop sharing, employing these firms is futile

ACS:NEWS - YOUR AWARD WINNING 24 HOUR ANTI-SCAM BROADCASTER

Good evening netizens.  As news flies in about new law firms set to take over where ACS:Law left off, BT and the courts tell Ministry of Sound to go away until January and Operation Payback floors yet more targets, we at ACS:News would like to bring you a special segment dedicated to ACS:Law named ACS:News FileWatch.

It's no secret that Andrew Johnathan Crossley and his law firm employed some of the dirtiest tactics in the field of law to make money from the masses but just how well did they do at what they claimed to have been working towards; protecting copyrights?

Last week, news broke to the release of a 'megapack' put up by pirates claiming to contain every album and song ACS:Law were recieving money to protect.  The pirates who released the pack stated that finding each album was simple and that anyone with a connection to the Internet could do it.  Sounds like a challenge, huh?  In this special report, our field team sets out to find the files supposedly protected by Andrew Crossley and finds out whether employing firms like ACS:Law is actually worth the stress on your wallet.

<Highlights of forthcoming segment...>


"Oh my god, I can't believe they're right there in front of us...", "<chuckling>Are they going to sue Google next?", "<excitement>Is that every file?  Every last one?  Oh *#$%......", "<shouting>WE'VE GOT A LETTER, I REPEAT WE'VE GOT A LETTER", "<distressed cries>IS EVERYBODY OK... #&$% IS EVERYBODY OK?"

Hello and welcome to ACS:News FileWatch.  In this month’s show we investigate just how well controversial law firm ACS:Law are protecting their client's 'intellectual' interests and if they really can keep people from sharing music on the Internet.

It's a misty early October morning and the team settle down at their desks armed with a list of files supposedly forbidden from the depths of the Internet.  Their aim: to see if, and just how easily the files can be obtained, depsite ACS:Law's claims.

Rachael, 23, was the first in our team to give it a try.  Rachael is tech savvy and uses BitTorrent regularly.  Using a combination of BitTorrent indexers and search engines she was astonished to find ALL of the music 'protected' by ACS:Law in readily downloadable, high-quality formats.

Next up was Matthew, ACS:News' 75 year old field reporter who has very limited experience with computers and the Internet.  "I like to email the grandkids at weekends and sometimes search for pictures of wildlife", says Matt, looking rather daunted by the prospect of being able to find and download an entire forbidden catalogue of music.  “Though according to ACS:Law I’m a big fan of talentless commercial dance act Cascada”, he mutters.  Matt starts by going to Google and searching simply for the titles of the music required followed by strings such as 'download', 'torrent' and 'mp3'.  To Matt's amazement he was able to obtain each and every album at lightening speeds, proving that even technophobes can and will use the Internet to download and share music.
“The grandkids will be proud of their granddad”, explains Matt.  “Maybe they’ll teach me how to share this stuff with others, though I’m not sure I want them listening to it!”

Throughout the day various other people tried the test and gained similar results with most people saying they could find the albums through a combination of Google, various P2P applications, BitTorrent and Usenet.
"I think anyone who plans on investing in ACS:Law should think long and hard before they part with their cash", claims one member of the team.
"I didn't doubt for a second that everything was readily available", claims another.
"If anything I think people will be more inclined to share the music they've been told not to, just to prove a point", says veteran field reporter Matthew.

Below are links to the files the team found.  These files were found using common search engines like Google and Bing and are NOT hosted by ACS:News.

So there you have it.  Solid evidence that employing law firms such as ACS:Law to 'protect' your works is not only a pointless waste of money but a sure way to alienate your potential audience, placing you squarely in the 'they are against file sharing' category.

...Back to you in the studio...
