Pirating Subscribers Could Cost Cox Over $200 Million

I can't help myself, I have to crack a "Piracy is not a victimless crime" joke. I think Cox might be learning this the hard way right about now. eek!

Internet provider Cox Communications is facing more than $200 million in potential damages, if a jury holds it responsible for the copyright infringements of its subscribers. According to music publisher BMG there is no doubt that Cox is responsible. After a week of trial hearings the company has asked the court to confirm this, arguing that the ISP failed to rebut its allegations.
