Re: if twc wins this kinda suemall will be over
The law firm sending out the threats and demands is also threatening TW. One of their lawyers claims that by failing to give up the subscriber names fast enough, and explaining their limited ability to process thousands of requests at once, Time-Warner Cable is "inducing copyright infringement".

This is copyright extremism and it's gone too far. We need laws to set higher standards for ISPs releasing customer data, and to provide some relief for people who are forced to pay even if they're innocent, because they can't afford lawyers.
