Cox Subscribers Dropped from Piracy Lawsuit

The US ISP Cox is not required to hand over the personal details of some of its subscribers who simply couldn't be guilty of piracy because they had no Cox subscription at the time of the alleged offense.

Back in 2014, the music industry sued Cox Communications, claiming that the Internet service provider failed to terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers. The music labels requested details on 150,000 accounts alleged of downloading their content. However, the court limited the initial disclosure to the top 250 infringing IP addresses in the 6 months prior to the lawsuit.

The ISP started informing its subscribers that their personal data would be handed over to the music companies. In a response, subscribers urged the court not to expose their identities, some arguing that they did not share the mentioned files, the others explained that they weren’t Cox subscribers at the time of the alleged offense.

As for the latter, this issue is due to ISP’s broad reading of an earlier court order. Thus, Cox Communications also included the current IP address holders into the list it handed over to the industry. The court then ruled that the customers who did not use the IP-address at the time should be dropped.

However, the former group of Cox customers who claimed they didn’t share copyright infringing content was less successful. The court denied their requests, and the ISP will hand their personal data over to the music labels. At the same time, the court assured them that their personal details would only be used as evidence in this lawsuit, not to extort cash settlements. Thus far, it is unclear how the music companies are going to use the personal details of the subscribers.
