    [news=http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41274000/jpg/_41274160_pirated_xp203.jpg]Ten internet service providers have been ordered to hand over the details of 150 UK customers accused of illegally sharing software.

    The High Court order follows a 12-month covert investigation by the Federation Against Software Theft (Fast).

    Among the internet providers are BT, NTL, Telewest and Tiscali.

    Over the next two weeks, they are expected to provide the names, addresses and other personal details of the alleged file-sharers.

    'First wave'

    An undercover investigator working for Fast in a project codenamed Operation Tracker identified 150 people suspected of illegally sharing software.

    Most file-sharers use false names and e-mail addresses. So the software anti-piracy group went to the High Court to force the internet providers to hand over customer details.

    They already have and still are doing it in the US and on a greater scale than a mere 150 users.
