Universal, Sony, Warner sue Frontier over copyright violations

Friday 11 June 2021 | 11:05 CET | News
NBCUniversal, Sony, and Time Warner are suing Frontier Communications in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, accusing the ISP of copyright violations, ArsTechnica reported. The media firms allege Frontier received hundreds of thousands of copyright infringement notices from copyright owners but continued providing use of its network to these "repeat infringers" and neither terminated any accounts nor took any other meaningful action against them. "In reality, Frontier operated its network as an attractive tool and safe haven for infringement," they claimed.
