Re: [IA] Mediacom shut me off That's bullshit. They need to forward the information but they don't have to ban you. That's Mediacom policy.

DMCA is a CIVIL matter
banning users is some thing mediacom cam up with most likely at the behest of the RIAA/MPAA
also DMCA take-down is only notice of ALLEGED infringement
which imo makes banning and 3 strikes stuff bullshit
even worse is any one can clam infringement and have a DMCA take down sent out
guy at work pissing you off if there on mediacom all you need is his IP and and you can send 3 DMCA take downs his way and he will be banned
regardless if there even legit or not
