Cox Denies Liability for Pirating Subscribers, Appeals $25 Million Verdict

I don't know how you guys feel about this case but personally I hope Cox wins this case on appeal. It's not that I support piracy, I just don't think your ISP should have to act as an enforcer on behalf of the music industry by terminating accounts of "repeat" offenders when the accused have not had the opportunity to challenge the charges against them in court.

Internet provider Cox Communications maintains that it's not responsible for copyright infringements carried out by its subscribers. The company has announced that it will appeal the $25 million damages verdict in its case against music publisher BMG.
