Cox Knew About Pirating Subscribers, Court Concludes

Story :

Internet provider Cox Communications can't argue that it had "no knowledge" of the hundreds of thousands of piracy notices it received, a Virginia federal court ruled. The ruling is important for the upcoming trial between the Internet provider and dozens of music companies, as "knowledge" is a critical element of the rightsholders' liability claim.

Last year Cox settled its piracy liability lawsuit with music rights company BMG.

While the company hoped that this would be the end of its copyright woes, the next legal battle was already being prepared.

This time, the ISP was up against 53 music companies, including Capitol Records, Warner Bros, and Sony Music.
