Anti-piracy lawyers caught pirating each other’s work.

Dear wconeybeer,

Must correct you on a few small but important points.

After Davenport-Lyons ceased the speculative invoicing game, Crossley left along with several colleagues to form ACS:Law using evidence and templates from Davenport-Lyons with their permission. He didn’t steal from them.

Andrew Crossley was referring to Tilly Bailey & Irvine using parts of his template letters without permission. ACS:Law would not be stealing from Crossley as he is the sole principal.

Lazy short cuts and sad state of affairs indeed. :wink:

Most people seem to forget the simple rule that when you point your finger at someone, you have 3 fingers pointing right back at you.
