Jonathan Fildes reports:

BT is seeking a moratorium on legal applications to obtain details of its customers who are alleged to have illegally shared files online.

The firm outlined its stance following a high-profile data breach at London law firm ACS:Law last week.

The leak saw thousands of customers’ details from various ISPs – including BT-owned PlusNet – published online.

BT said that it wanted a temporary halt on all new and existing applications until a “test case” could be heard.

It was originally to be heard today but was adjourned until 11 January 2011 following a hearing at London’s High Court.
