Comcast, the top U.S cable TV network operator, is being sued by a woman for disclosing her name and contact to RIAA, court records showed Thrusday.
The company, Settlement Support Center, was using information obtained from RIAA and contacted the woman in January and told her to pay a $4,500 fine for downloading illegal music or face a lawsuit for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"But no court authorized Comcast to release names and addresses of its customers, or notified his client that her information had been given to an outside party. Comcast should respect the rights of privacy who pay them monthly bills." Lybeck said. Source
