Three strikes and we let the rights holder go to court to get IP addresses? Given the rights holders have effectively had zero effect in getting the customer details from ISPs in the past, what are they going to do once they get them? If they can't get through the first stage of the legal battle and get thrown out at the discovery process, what chance have they got of actually successfully suing someone?
I hope some kind of court order would be needed before ISPs will hand over the customer details. However the article suggests that the details will just be handed over to anybody who claims an offense by any customer who has used up their strikes.
