TalkTalk loses High Court review over Digital Economy Act

In a joint action BT & TalkTalk had lodged a judicial review of the Digital Economy Act at the High Court, but the two leading ISPs failed in their bid to have the law overturned.

The controversial Digital Economy Act obliges fixed-line ISPs with more than 400,000 subscribers to notify customers whom rightsholders say have downloaded content without authorisation.

I now formally call on TalkTalk to notify me of any downloaded, scanned or viewed content to which they are not entitled from the 4 sites mentioned in my Cease and Desist Notice of 27th March 2011, by monitoring the statcounter information, a private service which I subscribe to and pay for and am therefore the rightsholder, which is not public domain information.

Ofcom are now aware of this violation and are looking into it.

Meanwhile, the TalkTalk bots continue to arrive. Monday was clear, with no visits and I was hoping for the same on Tuesday, but by the early evening they were back with 2 visits in quick succession.
