How does this stuff ever make it to court??? Why is it an ISP is
responsible for policing it's customers? I'm constantly getting called
up from scammers trying to offering me bogus warranty insurance for cars
I don't own...does that mean I can sue Verizon because they are letting
scammers use their network?
It doesn't mention anything in the article,. but I'm wondering if the
ISP received a court order to shut down the customer and ignored it,
then I can see why the ISP lost the case.
