One of the most important cases in the history of music copyright and content protection is happening right now, with a decision expected in months. Yet very few are even aware of its existence.The case involves Cox Communications, the third-largest ISP in the United States, and, depending on who you talk to, one of the largest facilitators of piracy in the world. That’s the accusation of litigating rights owners BMG Rights Management and Round Hill Music, who’ve finally rallied the courage (and resources) to haul the powerful broadband industry into court. According to BMG and Round Hill, Cox has actually lost its DMCA ‘safe harbor’ protection and is liable for billions, if not trillions, of dollars in copyright infringement.
