The Music Industry v. ISPs - Round 2
After their inconclusive action against Eircom, this time the music industry is suing UPC and BT. Proceedings were issued on Tuesday according to the (stupidly not hot-linkable) search facility on courts.ie. Expect the cat to be put among the pigeons shortly.
I believe that litigation demanding that ISPs monitor what their users do and/or disconnect users based on three unproven allegations is unjustified - for the reasons why, see the Digital Rights Ireland site in relation to user monitoring and three strikes.
