Popular music labels – including Sony, Universal, and Warner – prosecute US Internet communications provider, Charter Communications, for failing to terminate customer accounts held pirating.
He has also been charged with assisting subscribers to include pirates by offering fast Internet packages.
In a report by Ars Technica, the music labels say they have “advised its subscribers' Charter of using Charter Internet service to unlawfully upload, copy and distribute copyright music through BitTorrent and other online file-sharing services”.
“In its consumer marketing, Charter has touched on how its service enables subscribers to download and upload large volumes of content at the high speed of the Internet,” added the music labels.
It is also said that the Charter has benefited directly from those who were pirate content on their platform, because these consumers are buying their more expensive, fast Internet products.
In response, Communications Communications told Ars Technica that he will defend against the “unfounded allegations.”
