BitTorrent Usage Doesn’t Equal Piracy, Cox Tells Court

It's pretty sad that, in this day and age, many people still associate BitTorrent with piracy. frown

U.S. Internet provider Cox Communications is scheduled to go to trial soon, defending itself against copyright infringement claims from two music companies. In a new motion Cox asks the court to prohibit the use of any material claiming that BitTorrent equals piracy. BitTorrent has plenty legitimate uses and equating it to infringement would mislead the jury during trial, the ISP argues.
