Comcast Kills Business Model of Piracy Settlement Firm

Now this is funny. What happens if every internet service provider decides to do what Comcast is doing?

Comcast is threatening the business model of Rightscorp, a publicly traded firm that uses DMCA notices to demand piracy settlements from U.S. Internet subscribers. Unlike other Internet providers Comcast is not forwarding the settlement requests to its customers, only the infringement details. For Rightscorp this effectively kills all anti-piracy revenue from the largest ISP in the United States.
