My friend received a letter from a solicitor acting on behalf of Codemasters, I’m pretty sure. It says that he’s got to pay £500+ for making their Colin McRae game software available for others to download (presumably when he was downloading it using a torrent client).
The fee is for the game, the loss of business, the payment of the solicitor, and the payment of his ISP (probably for his information?).
However he never installed the game, never ticked a license agreement. Surely he can contest that part of the fee?
Is there anything else he can do?
