Mediacom Disconnects and Bans Alleged Internet Pirates

If you are a Mediacom customer, you'd better watch out where you get your Linux distros and game demos. eek!

Mediacom, one of the larger Internet providers in the United States, has not joined the controversial six-strikes anti-piracy scheme set to start later this year. But that doesn’t mean Mediacom customers can pirate without consequences, on the contrary. The Internet provider rigorously terminates the Internet access of subscribers who receive two DMCA notifications and after a third notice customers are permanently disconnected and banned for life.
