Rightscorp Destroyed Its Piracy Tracking Code

Cox Communications has asked a Virginia federal court to dismiss the copyright infringement lawsuit launched by the music labels back in 2014. The case in question relied on evidence gathered by piracy tracking firm Rightscorp, but now the ISP claims that the latter is unusable after the anti-piracy firm destroyed its older versions of the piracy tracking code.

Back in 2014, a couple of music companies sued Cox Communications claiming that it failed to terminate the accounts of the repeat infringers. The music group representing Katy Perry, The Beatles and David Bowie among others insisted that the ISP gave up its DMCA safe harbor protections because of failing to take any action to prevent infringement.

The case in question is based on evidence collected by Rightscorp, and the ISP believes that the firm is the driving force behind it, wishing to retaliate for the ISP’s refusal to forward the infringement warning. While both parties have been preparing for trial, Cox decided that one isn’t needed now, because a few weeks ago the court ruled that the anti-piracy firm spoiled the collected evidence by failing to preserve historical versions of its piracy tracking code. Now Cox calls for the entire case to be dismissed and claims that Rightscorp has intentionally destroyed the previous versions of the code.

According to the Internet service provider, all evidence of direct copyright violation relies on Rightscorp’s system, so if they can’t assess the accuracy of the tracking technology, they can’t review the reliability and accuracy of the claims. The court agreed that Rightscorp did indeed spoil crucial evidence. The Cox motion will be discussed at an upcoming hearing, while the music companies have already objected to the request.

ReservoirDogs avatar#analogkid6103 Unless their old tracking code is not reliable at 100% or has some secret they do not want to be revealed like, may be, some serious privacy infringement.
So they might be scare it can come up that this tracking code has some serious issues in a way or in another
