TIME WARNER CABLE WANTS NO PART OF LEGAL ACTION AGAINST PIRATES

Time Warner cable has rejected a demand by a group of Washington D.C. lawyers to provide information about more than 2,000 BitTorrent users who may have illegally downloaded director Uwe Boll’s movie Far Cry. The recently formed U.S. Copyright Group has said that it intends to sue the downloaders of the movie and plans to file additional suits against thousands of others who have downloaded independent films. While not discussing the merits of USCG’s tactic, Time Warner Cable said it would take the efforts of its employees at least three months to accede to USCG’s demands — and then only if it set aside its requests from authorities to hunt down the locations of rapists, terrorists, child abductors, and suicidal individuals.
