Lawsuit: Comcast Must Terminate Pirates & Block Top Torrent Sites
Comcast has joined AT&T and Verizon to become the third U.S.-based ISP to be sued for copyright infringement this month. Led by Voltage Holdings, a coalition of filmmakers says that Comcast failed to meet its obligations under the DMCA to disconnect customers repeatedly flagged for copyright violations.
In 2019, a Virginia jury ordered Internet provider Cox Communications to pay a billion dollars in damages to record labels including Capitol Records, Warner Bros, and Sony Music.

The decision is being appealed but in the meantime other ISPs face similar allegations, including AT&T and Verizon, who were sued earlier this month.
