UPC ordered to act on downloading
27 Mar 2015 20:08
The High Court has ordered the country's second largest internet service provider to take measures to stop illegal downloading of music.
-
Mr Justice Brian Cregan granted three music companies an injunction requiring UPC Communications to move against its subscribers involved in internet piracy.
-
The Irish companies of Sony Music, Warner Music and Universal Music sought the orders.
-
Mr Justice Cregan adjourned the case until next month to allow the parties prepare a submission on how this order is to be implemented.
-
It will include what sort of impartial arbitration system should be set up to deal with subscribers who seek to challenge termination of their service.
-
Under the court's order, UPC must set up a computerised detection system within 12-15 months under which infringing subscribers are told their service will be terminated unless they stop the illegal downloading.
