“Charter has received subpoenas from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) requesting the identities of approximately 150 Charter high speed Internet access customers alleged by RIAA to be violating copyright law by file-sharing copyrighted music over the Internet.
To date, the Company has not supplied RIAA with any information under the subpoenas.
In line with our response to the RIAA subpoenas, Charter sent written notification to customers involved in the subpoenas, notifying them that their identities are being sought by RIAA.
Charter considers customer relationships to be its most important responsibility. Accordingly, we're exercising our legal rights in order to protect the legitimate interests of our customers and our business.”
