More filesharing litigation coming to Ireland?

Last time it was the music industry. This time Hollywood? John Collins posts:
my home phone rang this morning with a little surprise for me. it was a representative of bt who asked me to confirm that i have a broadband service with them. when i said he did, he told me they had been contacted by paramount movies (as far as i can see there is no entity of this name, but who am i to split hairs) to say i was sharing a movie of theirs, an inconvenient truth. he asked me to remove it from my pc because if they didn't they could take further action.

  1. I wonder about the veracity of the complaint - it's paramount pictures corporation - and I worked there - and any action would have been made by their lawyers - not by random telephone calls
