RIAA Refuses to Share Results of ‘Six Strikes’ Anti-Piracy Scheme

Story :

The RIAA is refusing to share information about the effectiveness of the "Six Strikes" Copyright Alert System with Cox Communications. The ISP subpoenaed the data as part of an ongoing piracy liability lawsuit. The company wants to show that its own anti-piracy measures worked better than the alternative that was praised by the music industry.

The so-called ‘Six-Strikes’ Copyright Alert System was once praised as an excellent tool to address online piracy.

Under the agreement, which involved the MPAA and RIAA, several large Internet providers in the US sent copyright infringement warnings to pirating customers.

After repeated alerts, these subscribers would face a variety of ‘mitigation’ measures but their accounts would not be terminated. Although rightsholders and ISPs appeared happy with the deal, it was shut down two years ago.
