IFPI Targets ISPs Who Allow Piracy On Their Networks

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) stated it would move to sue Internet service providers (ISPs) if they continued to allow identified digital music pirates to use their networks. ISPs have been harder to pursue legally than the individual downloaders the IFPI has so far targeted because they can claim they have no knowledge of any piracy occurring on their networks. However, Denmark’s supreme court ruled last year that ISPs were obliged to terminate the connections of customers engaged in music piracy.
