Court to Decide Whether ISP Should Expose Pirating Subscribers

Music publisher BMG Rights Management won a $25 million judgment in December 2015 and has requested a permanent injunction against Cox Communications. The music group demands the ISP to disclose the personal details of pirating subscribers. In response, the ISP has asked the court to reconsider the guilty verdict or grant a new trial.

In December 2015, a Virginia federal jury announced its verdict saying that Cox Communications was responsible for the copyright infringements of its customers and must now pay BMG $25 million in damages. During trial hearings it turned out that tracking company Rightscorp downloaded more than 150,000 copies of BMG copyrighted works directly from Cox Internet users.

Now Cox renewed its motion for judgment as a matter of law in a hope to escape the jury verdict. Alternatively, the Internet service provider wanted the court to grant a new trial. Of course, the copyright holders opposed this motion and have submitted a request for a permanent injunction instead, claiming that Cox has failed to take any action to prevent further copyright violation by its subscribers.

Cox informed BMG that the company was still analyzing all aspects of its processes and procedures, but the music group didn’t want to wait any longer and has requested a permanent injunction from the court. Apart from forwarding all future takedown notices to infringing subscribers, the copyright holders also requested an overview of the actions the ISP takes to prevent further violations. Moreover, BMG also requested to reveal the personal details of all associated account holders, including their names, email addresses and phone numbers. The music publisher doesn’t state how it is going to use these personal details, but it’s likely that the subscribers may be offered to pay a settlement fee.

BMG believes that the proposed injunction is fair, taking into account the alleged harm it still suffers from the mass copyright infringements on Cox’s network. Now it’s up to court to review the requests from both parties – if it sides with the copyright owners, then the ISP will have to reveal the personal details of its subscribers, and if Cox Communications has its way, the jury verdict may be moot, or alternatively there will be another trial.

trialNerror avatarAnd another quarter million people downloaded those songs from So-N-So ISP, and another 100K using This&That ISP, and bla bla bla from ISP's all around the globe. Is BMG going to sue all other ISP's they legally can following this last trial? Absurd. As others have pointed out; Sharing files themselves to catch "thieves" is also absurd. Wanting to collect over $150USD for one song is incredibly absurd. Crying wolf; Claiming the entertainment industry in all forms is suffering and losing money from "digital piracy" yet the bottom line for most of these movies and albums are grossing plenty of dough. Way more than what it cost to produce. Speaking of producing, if the music artists are so PO'ed about not getting enough money from their music sells, maybe they should look at their shady producers and managers before jumping on the outrageous piracy bandwagon.

Like the latest ep of X Files humorously pointed out - as a human all you have to do is BS the heck out of people to get your way and to the top. That's what's going on with these lawsuits. Some greedy dollar sign in the eyes lawyers are BS'ing the wigs off these oldies for judges to get their ways and a bigger pile of cash.
