Two music publishers - BMG Rights Management LLC and Round Hill Music LP – have sued Atlanta-based Cox Communications Inc., claiming that Cox deliberately turns a blind eye to illegal downloading by its subscribers.
BMG and Round Hill, each of which controls the publishing rights to a number of well-known artists, claim such behavior by Cox violates federal copyright law, The Wall Street Journal reports.
A complaint filed in federal court in Alexandria, Va., claims Cox does not terminate subscribers and account holders who download the music because it would cause Cox to lose money.
A Cox representative declined to comment, the WSJ said.
