Cox Communications, Inc. Key Developments

Rightscorp Applauds $25 Million Judgment against Cox Communications

Rightscorp praised Judge Liam O'Grady's decision in the Eastern District of Virginia entering $25 million final judgment against Cox Communications in favor of BMG Rights Management. For nearly five years, Rightscorp has warned US internet service providers (ISPs) that they risk of incurring huge liabilities if they fail to implement and enforce policies under which they terminate the accounts of their subscribers who repeatedly infringe copyrights. Over that time, many ISPs have taken the position that it was simply impossible for an ISP to be held liable for its subscribers' actions -- even when the ISP had been put on notice of massive infringements and supplied with detailed evidence. There had never been a judicial decision holding an ISP liable. That all changed, when the first court to decide the issue held that an ISP can, indeed, be liable for the infringing activity of its subscribers.
