According to insiders that have spoken up, the company plans to soon cut off the service of customers who have repeatedly downloaded copyrighted content despite at least nine past warnings to stop. Similar to other internet providers, AT&T was previously part of a "Copyright Alert System", an internet industry group effort that worked with the movie and recording industries to educate users to try to cut down on copyright infringement. More than a dozen customers will reportedly be notified of the service banhammer in coming days.
Apparently, the United States telecoms company has plans to inform a dozen people who've infringed upon the copyrights of protected content that they will be kicked off of its broadband service.
While ISPs have long reported pirating claims to customers, this is the first known time that AT&T is actually taking action against its customers.
The content owners contacted AT&T when they found about an internet connection illegitimately sharing the copyrighted content.
