Default Sky ordered to hand torrent users' details over to 'copyright troll'

Sky Broadband subscribers suspected of illegally downloading movies could have their personal details handed over to a so-called "copyright troll".

The service provider is obliged to turn over the names and addresses of the requested broadband customers to The Company You Keep (TCYK) after losing a court battle against the US firm.

TCYK will then request compensation from the suspected torrent user to settle the case out of court under the threat of implied legal action, reports TorrentFreak.

The company monitors file-sharing websites for illegal activity and gets internet service providers to release details about the offending accounts.

"A company called TCYK LLC, which owns the rights to several copyrighted films, has claimed that a number of Sky Broadband customers engaged in unlawful file-sharing of some of its films," Sky wrote in a letter to affected customers.

"In support of this claim, TCYK LLC says it has gathered evidence of individual broadband accounts (identified online by unique numbers called IP addresses) from which it claims the file sharing took place.

"It's likely that TCYK LLC will contact you directly and may ask you to pay them compensation."

Sky is unable to vouch for the validity of TCYK's claims, but advises customers to closely examine the wording of any letters they receive before parting with cash, and consult the Citizens Advice Bureau if they have any additional concerns.

"TCYK LLC successfully applied for a court order against Sky, which means we have been ordered to supply the details of some of our account holders that match the list of IP addresses they have identified," the firm said in a statement to Digital Spy.

"We advise any of our customers who receive a letter from TCYK LLC to read it carefully and if they want any further help to contact the Citizens Advice Bureau."

That's absolutely ridiculous breech of privacy and freedom instead of getting the website itself to court.. they gonna take it on a simple internet users to pay the price...
Its always the unlawful sky rupert Murdoch himself who'se trying to rule the world to impose this. after himself was involved with International phone-hacking scandal.
what's the world coming to?
I have never and will never subscribe to Sky tv or internet service.

It would 100% be interesting how they are going to prove the users were downloading illegally ! As these sites operate links to servers.... which change there static address quicker then I change my pants !

Crazy..... I tell ya who makes up so much crap!

Default Sky are also copyright owners !

therefore they see it as in their interest to shop unauthorised downloaders, this is what you get when you sign up to an IP company who owns sports and film tv rights.

They are going to look after their own interests not their customers.

You should have realised this before you signed up.
