Cox Hit With $1B Music Piracy Verdict

Cox Communications is liable for the infringement of more than 10,000 pirated songs, a Virginia jury held, and it’s going to cost the company $1 billion in damages. Sony Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, EMI and their music publishing subsidiaries in June 2018 sued Cox, claiming the internet giant “knowingly contributed to, and reaped substantial profits from, massive copyright infringement committed by thousands of its subscribers.”
