O2 forced to hand over customers IP addresses to porn producer

Written by Nick Farrell

Prepared to be blackmailed

British ISP O2 was ordered by the Chancery Division of the British High Court to hand over the customer details belonging to a portion of 9,124 IP addresses. The addresses used BitTorrent clients to download porn created by the British Ben Dover Productions.

Golden Eye who was acting on behalf of Ben Dover compiled the list of the more than 9,000 IP addresses it claims have illegally downloaded its copyrighted material. Golden Eye will be sending letters only to those O2 customers that may have illegally downloaded Ben Dover Productions films.

Golden Eye demanded the right to ask for £700 per illegal downloader, but the High Court refused and said that Golden Eye must allow O2 customers the opportunity to show they have not committed copyright infringement. If they indeed illegally downloaded Ben Dover Productions' porn, remittance for infringement would be negotiated on a defendant-by-defendant basis.
