Cox Must Pay $8M to Cover BMG’s Legal Fees in Piracy Case

It looks as though Cox will have to pay out more than $8 million to cover the legal fees of BMG after losing a lawsuit to the music company late last year.

Internet provider Cox Communications must pay more than $8 million to compensate the legal fees of music group BMG. The Virginia federal court argues that the Internet provider crossed a line with its "deeply flawed DMCA defense" and sees the high fees as a proper incentive to improve its anti-piracy policies.
