A handful of ISPs (AT&T, Comcast, Cox) are sending RIAA notices to downloaders that the RIAA deems performing copyright infringement. AT&T said the notices don't mean much to them and will not cut off internet access unless ordered by a court. Seems companies may be finally figuring out that the customer is the one that keeps them in business, not the RIAA.


Comcast said Wednesday afternoon that it hasn't changed its policy. An executive who spoke at the same conference as Cicconi told the audience that the company has sent 2 million notices on behalf of content owners. A company representative said the company has no plans to test "a so-called 'three-strikes-and-you're-out' policy."

But music industry sources told CNET that Comcast has agreed to cooperate with the RIAA in other ways.

I wonder what Comcrapst has in store for their customers...
