The copyright trolls are back in the UK, but not for long if it’s up to the Open Rights Group (ORG).
As we covered earlier ORG plans to protect accused BitTorrent downloaders against the extortion schemes.
The group wants to intervene in the GoldenEye Appeal and make sure the identities of (often innocent) Internet users will not be handed over to the copyright troll.
To do so, ORG needs to raise £5,000 from the public. Thus far £4,450 has been raised so far, but they really need the extra bit before next week, or else they will simply refund the donators.
