Note: DSLReports has radically edited their article from this morning. Initially, it focused on MPAA, however now it only refers to Comcast issuing DMCA notices. Slyck appologizes for any confusion.

DSL Reports specifically documents a DMCA notice against a Comcast user for violating a copyright on eDonkey2000. Keep in mind the BitTorrent report relies on the testimony of Comcast users. Below is a copy of the DMCA violation notice:

Dear comcast high-speed internet Subscriber:

Comcast has received a notification of claimed infringement made under the Digital millennium Copyright Act(the'DMCA'). This notification, made by a copyright owner or its authorized agent, reports an alleged infringement of one or more copyrighted works made on or over Comcast's High-Speed Internet service(the 'Service'). The works identified in the notification of claimed infringement are listed below. In accordance with the DMCA and Comcast's acceptable Use Policy, Comcast request that you immediately remove the allegedly infringing works from the Service or Comcast will be forced to remove or block access to the works.

If you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then you may send a counter notification to Comcast. Upon Comcast's receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, Comcast will provide a copy of the counter notification to the party who sent the original notification of claimed infringement. We will the follow the DMCA's procedures with respect to a received counter notification.

For more information regarding Comcast's copyright infringement policy, procedures, and contact information, please read our Acceptable Use Policy by clicking on the terms of Service link at ┬╗
