Most of file-sharers ignore piracy notifications from their ISPs, but two Comcast subscribers accused of pirating music are now in trouble for doing so. After paying no attention to hundreds of notices from anti-piracy group named Rightscorp, the users are now sued over sharing the 20+ year-old music albums.
Different countries use different programs to notify users of alleged copyright infringement – the US uses the “six-strikes” regime, Canada has its own fledgling program launched earlier in 2015. Most of such notifications are relatively benign, while others come with a price tag. The anti-piracy group Rightscorp asks for $20 settlement in the infringement notices it sends out. However, Rightscorp doesn’t know the identities of its targets – this is why cash demands are often ignored. But in our case, Rightscorp went further.
One of the record labels filed two lawsuits to sue Comcast users who allegedly downloaded and shared one music album each. Rightscorp was hired by the label to monitor BitTorrent networks for infringement. Rightscorp confirmed that it connected to the accused file-sharers’ BitTorrent programs and downloaded full copies of those albums to verify that they were identical to the original copyright tracks. As a result, the company sent lots of warnings to the Comcast users asking them to stop sharing the copyrighted works, but they ignored each and every notice and continued their infringement.
Now the record label went to court to demand an injunction forbidding further online violation in both cases and demanding to remove both albums from the users’ computers. Finally, the copyright owner wants statutory damages and attorneys’ fees.
