Silver surfers accused of file sharing

It seems that you do not have to be a youngster to be accused of downloading illegal music, video or games.

In fact the consumer magazine Which? is estimating that there could in fact be hundreds of households being accused incorrectly of file sharing.

This is what happened to Ken and Gill Murdoch aged 54 and 66 from Inverness, Scotland.

These are a couple who say that they have never played a computer game before, yet according to Davenport Lyons of London, they have been sharing the Atari game Race 07.

The letter that the couple received from the law firm demanded that they pay 500 as compensation and 25 to go towards costs; otherwise, they would be facing legal proceedings.

However, shortly after the couple contacted Which? Davenport Lyons decided to drop the case against them.
