24 Illegal Downloading: What does "DMCA" stand for? "DMCA" stands for Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It is a federal law that seeks to balance the rights of owners and users of copyrighted digital
To avoid legal liability when customers repeatedly infringe copyrights, internet services providers like Suddenlink must, according to the DMCA,implement a notification and termination policy.
Of course, we do not want to terminate the service of any customer, which is why we forward notices that we receive from copyright owners to our customers so they can either take steps to stop the noted sharing or posting of copyrighted file. Or if they believe the notice is in error, they can contact the copyright owner and dispute the claim.
Copyright infringements that might affect Suddenlink customers.
Under the DMCA, there are two types of copyright infringement claims that may affect Suddenlink customers: The first and most common type involves the illegal transfer or sharing of copyrighted materials over Suddenlink’s network. The second type involves the illegal placement or posting of copyrighted materials on Suddenlink servers or hosted websites. Allegations of unlawful transfer or sharing of copyrighted materials
Notification process for illegal transfer or sharing of copyrighted material
While the specifics may vary from one individual to the next, the steps in the notification process for illegal transfer or sharing of copyrighted material generally follow this pattern:
An owner of copyrighted material detects what it considers to be the illegal sharing or posting of copyrighted materials by an IP (Internet Protocol) address associated with Suddenlink.
The copyright owner, under penalty of perjury, notifies Suddenlink of the suspected activity, identifying the material in question, the IP address, and the date and time of the offense.
Suddenlink checks its records to determine which customer was assigned the IP address in question on the date and time of the alleged copyright infringement.
Suddenlink does NOT share the customer’s name or any other personal information with the copyright owner. Instead, Suddenlink notifies the customer of the allegation in the following manner: When opening an Internet browser, the affected customer is directed to a Suddenlink-created Web page, which the customer is required to read and acknowledge before visiting other Web pages or sites.
After reading and acknowledging the notification, the customer decides how to proceed: by taking no further action; or by disputing the notice; or by deleting the questionable files and securing his/her computer.
Customers who receive but choose to ignore multiple DMCA notices from Suddenlink may have their Internet service terminated. However, Suddenlink does NOT have a rigid, one-size-fits-all termination rule. Instead, we treat each case individually
