Verizon Asked to Share "Six Strikes" Alerts for BitTorrent Lawsuit
Itís just a few weeks since the six-strikes copyright alert system was activated in the U.S. and already itís being utilized in a civil action against an alleged BitTorrent pirate. To prepare for a trial against a Verizon subscriber, adult movie studio Malibu Media has subpoenaed the userís ISP to hand over copies of DMCA and six-strikes notices issued to far. In addition, the copyright holder also wants to know how much bandwidth the subscriber uses each month, and what pay-per-view programs were watched.
