OMG!!! Infringement of Copyright Letter

in Consumer rights
39 replies 8.9K views
I am at the end of my tether and soooooo lost with this.........I received a letter yesterday from a solicitor acting on behalf of 3 people who wrote a song.
It stated that they have got information from my ISP (Sky) that I have illegally downloaded a song which belongs to them!
They say that 1. Promise never to do it again, 2. Delete the song, 3. Pay them £295 damages.

I just dont know what to do!!!!!

Ok.....There are 4 of us in the house, My partner can barely turn a laptop on let alone download something, My daughter did not have a laptop at the time of download and is not into that type of music, I have only ever downloaded songs on Itunes for my sons ipod (cost me around £10 to download and he never uses it). If anyone has ever offered us Cd/dvd copies..I always say no because I am totally against them!!!! I would rather own the real thing.

Get this....the song downloaded was 'Evacuate the Dancefloor by Cascada'!!!!! There is no way in hell I would ever even buy it.

What on earth shall I do!!!! please help as I just dont agree with this or have a spare £300.

All help would be very appreciated. Thanks
