Malibu Media Continues To Seek Six Strikes Data From Broadband Providers To Use Against People It Sues
from the troll-troll-trolling dept
And it's yet another reason why the whole six strikes/CAS program is so troubling. It involves a list of accusations, not convictions, of copyright violations, where the person being accused has no real recourse (there is a limited right to appeal, which costs money and does not even allow you to make use of basic defenses, such as noting that a work is in the public domain). While defenders of the program didn't seem to think there was anything wrong with this sort of "guilty until proven innocent with limited defenses" setup, in part because it wasn't a court case, the fact that this data may now be used in court cases should be insulting to basic concepts of due process.
