No folks, we’re not talking about the French law that enforces a three-strike penalty against alleged illegal file-sharers. Following suit with Cox Communications, U.S. ISP Suddenlink has deactivated a user’s account, suspending them for six months, after receiving three DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) copyright violation notices. Suddenlink services customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, West Virginia, and elsewhere. With more and more ISPs starting to crack down on file sharers, it’s becoming less likely that torrents will continue as the primary file-sharing medium for much longer. Long live the NZB.
