Re: Has Voltage gone away ?

Teksavvy only keeps logs for three months right? It's been over three months since Voltage ask for those logs, so wouldn't the ip addresses be deleted by now? or is Teksavvy saving those logs?

Because they started the suit before the 3 months was up, under current copyright laws, they need to keep the logs for people currently being sued for 6 months, 12 if the case isn't still resolved.

Yes...and even without the new copyright regulations, there are more general laws about legal hold orders...you're not allowed to destroy information that's being requested in a legal dispute until the court rules on it (or a statutory period expires).

The 90 day retention doesn't help anyone named by Voltage...but for those people who chose to set up a VPN or proxy as soon as the law changed in Nov, the 90 days is almost up and they'll soon be in the clear.
