    It would send a message, at least, but it is kind of absurd.

      With the DMCA the ISP is required to shut down the site if the user is shown to be running illegal software or distributing software illegally.

        Also, when sueing, be sure to sue for loss of profits, legal fees, attorney fees, etc.

              But how does the ISP determine who's telling the truth if both parties claim the other as lying? And let's say it wasn't with jelsoft but some individual who isn't well-known.
              Well, there it is.

                  128 kbytes or 128 kbits? I have 128 kbits (16 KB/sec) and it's brutally slow for long transfers.

                    Pretty hard to prove you own the rights to the script when you don't have a single source file for the graphics, etc.

                        From experience when you are dealing with a broadband ISP it is next to impossible to get them to shutdown a customer for distributing copyright software.
                        I have been trying to get one of the biggest broadband ISP which is also a Telco to shutdown or remove a copy of one of my companies products. This has been ongoing for 2 years now.

                          Telco explains it all.

                          If they aren't going to do about any of the abuse that originates from their own servers (spammers, scammers, password stealers) then as a company ISP they are no better than the common criminal.

                          Why haven't you gotten a lawyer on this already? It took my lawyer to send their CEO a cease and desist letter to get them to boot off a career spammer from their network that was mail bombing my domain and mail servers for porn, weight loss, viagra and such. I dont think they appreciated the $5,000,000 price tag I was going to ask for for ever 5 spam emails that originated off their network either.

                            Exactly. Especially for a big company. Intellectual property theft can mean a large settlement and most companies have in-house legal departments which will advise the company to stop doing it. A good lawyer will be able to get the results you want.

                              That's also what your opponent thinks and has.

                                What if it's just a script or words that were stolen? Then how or why does a host have be the judge?
