US Court holds ISP liable for Copyr. Infring.

23rd December 2019

Last week, the US district Court of Virginia held ISP Cox liable for contributory and vicarious copyright infringements of more than 10,000 recordings and works on the basis that it did not adopt and implement a reasonable repeat infringer policy in accordance with s512(i)(1) DMCA. The action was brought in July 2018 by 53 music companies, including Sony Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and their associated publishing companies, on the basis that Cox ignored hundreds of thousands of infringement notices. As a result, the jury awarded statutory damages of almost $100,000 for each infringing work.
