Porn troll case prompts ISPs to fight to protect customer IDs

05.12.2013 12:35 PM

Cox, AT&T, other ISPs are fighting a court order in a copyright case, seeking to protect BitTorrent users from a legal fishing expedition.

Several major ISPs embroiled in a copyright lawsuit with an adult film copyright holder are appealing a ruling in the case that could permit hundreds of innocent subscribers to be harassed by copyright trolls.

Nothing but cowardly scumbag crooks with law degrees.  I truly hope they do get disbarred for life.  True justice would be putting these dregs in prison and give them womens names....
