+ - DMCA Notices: Guilty until proven innocent

Submitted by Ben Maurer
Ben Maurer (666) writes "It's no secret that media companies have started to hire companies automatically find file sharers and send letters to their ISPs. Many ISP's trust the good faith of these companies and will automatically deactivate the Internet connection of those who they get notifications for. I decided to investigate the reliability of notices from these companies. The answer: the companies do not actually gather the data they claim to and may falsely accuse users of copyright violation."
