The Internet service providers that have agreed to work with the recording industry to battle illegal file sharing are starting to come forward. Joe Waz, a senior vice president at Comcast, the nation's second largest ISP, told a gathering of music industry executives that the company has issued 2 million notices on behalf of copyright owners, according to multiple people who were in attendance. Comcast said Wednesday afternoon that the 2 million notices Waz referred to were part of the company's standard practice and not a new policy. Comcast, like other major ISPs, forwards notices of alleged infringement that we receive from music, movie, videogame, and other content owners to our customers," Comcast said in a statement. "This is the same process we've had in place for years--nothing has changed. While we have always supported copyright holders in their efforts to reduce piracy under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and continue to do so, we have no plans to test a so-called 'three-strikes-and-you're-out' policy."

Very interesting. Note that they stay well clear of actually losing 2 million customers. I wonder why?   8)

this seems like a... we think pirating stuff is bad but losing buissness is worse so we will publically agree with you but wont do much about it.
