Nate Anderson has the exclusive report:
Last week, the law firm of Dunlap, Grubb, & Weaver dropped a letter in the mail. A few days ago it was opened by a woman whom we’ll call Sabine (she asked that her identity be kept private, and some details and dates of her case have been altered to maintain anonymity), and it informed her that she had been identified swapping the film Far Cry on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks during the night of March 22.
Nate goes on to tell the tale of the litigation threat, then includes a small detail of note: Sabine claims total innocence. Of course, lots of people claim that they are innocent. But could it be that Sabine really is and that the law firm has this one all wrong?
