Cox Settles With BMG In Landmark Copyright Case


(CelebrityAccess) — German label group BMG announced on Friday that they had reached a settlement with Cox Communications in its 2015 lawsuit alleging that the ISP contributed to copyright infringement.

“This was a landmark case in which BMG took on the third biggest internet service provider in the United States to defend and establish the principle that in order to benefit from a so-called ‘safe harbor’ defense, an ISP has responsibilities. While the financial terms of the settlement are confidential, we are happy they reflect the seriousness of this case.” BMG North America General Counsel Keith Hauprich said in a press statement.
