By timothy from Slashdot's you-must-crack-the-whip department:
wabrandsma (2551008) writes with this excerpt from Ars Technica:
BMG Rights Management and Round Hill Music have sued Cox Communications for copyright infringement, arguing that the Internet service provider doesn't do enough to punish those who download music illegally.
Both BMG and Round Hill are clients of Rightscorp, a copyright enforcement agent whose business is based on threatening ISPs with a high-stakes lawsuit if they don't forward settlement notices to users that Rightscorp believes are "repeat infringers" of copyright.

In their complaint (PDF), the music publishers also decided to publicly post IP addresses.

I'm really getting sick and tired of this music and movie industry crying about how everyone should be doing their jobs for them.
It's not Cox's (or anyone else's) responsibility to fight your battle for you.
