Sky warns customers about 'speculative invoicing' letters

Wednesday 18 November 2015 | 21:08 CET | News
Sky has warned a number of broadband customers that they could face demands for payment of fines for illegally downloading adult films, reports The Guardian. The broadband provider has been forced to send letters to customers after receiving a court order to hand over their personal details to rights company Golden Eye, which also trades as Ben Dover Productions. In 2012, Golden Eye received the same data from O2 and sent letters to customers seeking payment of GBP 700 per film.
