Comcast Terminates Accounts of Persistent Pirates

If you are a Comcast subscriber that likes to repeatedly get busted downloading pirated content, you should probably start shopping for a new ISP....soon.

Under the DMCA Internet providers have an obligation to take action against persistent pirates. While the law doesn’t define under what circumstances this should happen, Comcast is very clear about its policy. Talking to TorrentFreak, the Internet provider confirms that subscribers who are caught for "repeated and egregious" copyright infringement will have their accounts terminated.
