Record Labels File ‘Billion Dollar’ Piracy Lawsuit Against ISP COX

Story :

For more than a decade, copyright holders have been sending takedown notices to ISPs to alert them that their subscribers are sharing copyrighted material.

Under US law, providers must terminate the accounts of repeat infringers “in appropriate circumstances” and increasingly they are being held to this standard.

Cox Communications has been one of the prime targets thus far. A federal court previously ordered the ISP to pay $25 million in damages to music publisher BMG. While this was overturned on appeal, where a retrial was issued, it’s not in safe waters yet.

This week Cox’s problems doubled after a group of high profile record labels filed a new piracy liability lawsuit against the Intenet provider. Sony Music Entertainment, EMI Music, Universal Music, Warner Bros Records, and several others accuse the company of turning a blind eye to pirating subscribers.
