Topware Takes Action Against 100 File Sharers
Following its legal victory over four people accused of uploading Dream Pinball 3D last month for peer-to-peer file sharing, Topware, via its lawyers, Davenport Lyons, is now pursuing 100 people for the same offence.

The case last month resulted in the four people being fined 750 and ordered to pay 2,000 in costs by at Central London County Court. The fine apparently represents the amount Topware lost as a result of the four file sharers.

Back in March 2007, the law firm was called on by German software house, Zuxxex, to chase down 500 alleged file sharers in Great Britain in relation to the same game. Back then, according to The Register, the lawyers sent letters our that "recommended paying a 600 fine".
