·Pacific Bell - SBC
Round up the usual suspects ... One poster in the Comcast Internet Forum reported receiving a DMCA notice for a date when he was away from home, and no other household members were present either. Apparently a pirate used a hacked modem with his MAC address, so the "offending" IP address was improperly tied to his account.
My mother, an SBC customer at one time, canceled an order for hardware before it was shipped. SBC honored the cancel, and did not ship. But she spent the next eleven months fighting the Billing (Bilking?) Dept. over a monthly charge for the item not delivered.
To err is human, but to really foul things up takes a computer.
And we are to assume that "Six Strikes" will never get it wrong? And have to pony up $35 to prove it when (not "if") they do? Whom does the ISP actually serve? Apparently not the paying customer; but rather the MPAA/RIAA.
The good news, for me, is that I could fire AT&T and hire an ISP which is not on board with "Six Strikes".
