140 U.S. Internet Providers Disconnect Persistent File-Sharers

[Rightscorp, Inc.], a prominent piracy monitoring firm that works with [Warner Bros. Entertainment] and other copyright holders, claims that 140 U.S. ISPs are actively disconnecting repeat copyright infringers. While these numbers sound rather impressive, there’s a lot more to the story. […] The company monitors Bit Torrent networks for people who download titles owned by the copyright holders they work for, and then approaches these alleged pirates via their Internet providers. The ISPs are asked to forward Rightscorp’s settlement demands to the alleged infringer, which is usually around $20 per shared file. – Ernesto, TorrentFreak  http://ift.tt/1xxwHVp
