Six Strikes Anti-Piracy Outfit Loses Company Status, Faces Penalties

Ummm, exactly how do you get your company status revoked? And these are the people running the "six-strikes" program? Yikes eek!

The Center for Copyright Information, a partnership between the RIAA, MPAA and several major Internet providers, has had its company status revoked. The CCI, who are leading the "six strikes" anti-piracy scheme in the US, has violated state laws and is unable to conduct any official business anywhere in the United States. In addition the outfit faces civil penalties and risks losing its name to a third-party company.
