US judge rules against Cox in illegal downloading case

Thursday 26 November 2015 | 10:02 CET | News
A US district judge has ruled for Cox in a case pitting the cable operator against music publishers BMG Rights Management and Round Hill Music, the Wall Street Journal reported. The publishers took Cox to court for deliberately turning a blind eye to the illegal downloading activities of its subscribers. The ruling could make ISPs take a harder line with subscribers suspected of infringing. The case is expected to go trial next week to determine whether Cox should be held liable for its alleged role in any infringement, and, if so, how much it should have to pay.
