Fifteen Major Record Labels Sue Frontier Over Pirating

Fifteen major recording labels including UMG, Sony Music and Warner Music have sued US ISP Frontier Communications for failing to suspend the accounts of customers who allegedly downloaded and shared pirated music. The companies describe Frontier as a safe haven for pirates and one that generates revenue from repeat infringers.

Over the past several years there has been a drive to hold US-based ISPs liable for copyright infringements carried out by their customers.

Major recording labels have been at the heart of the action, suing Cox Communications, Charter Communications and RCN, for failing to suspend the accounts of customers who pirated music, even though the ISPs had been sent multiple DMCA notices indicating that infringement was taking place.
