IRELAND (CelebrityAccess) – Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music, and Warner Music are seeking a High Court order against Sky Ireland to force the Irish pay-TV company to impose a “three strikes” policy against its broadband customers who download copyrighted music via pirate websites.

Sky, which accounts for more than one in eight fixed-line Irish broadband accounts, has informed the music companies that it will comply with their request, provided they obtain a court order.

SME, UMG, and WM are also in similar discussions with Vodafone Ireland and are expected to obtain a court order in that case as well. High-profile copyright lawyer Helen Sheehy is handling all proceedings on behalf of the three majors.
