Verizon, Time Warner Won't Terminate Accounts for Piracy

Verizon and Time Warner Cable said they won't pull the plug on customers accused of piracy through a forthcoming "six strikes" program. Link Hoewing, Verizon's vice president, and Fernando Laguarda, Time Warner Cable's vice president, said at a forum organized by the Internet Society that after they repeatedly inform customers that that their activities appear to violate copyright law, the companies' obligation is fulfilled -- and no account termination will take place.
