Time Warner: Protecting Our Customer's Privacy Is A Cost Cutting Measure

According to this Time Warner has refused to turn over contact info on subscribers engaged in illegal file sharing unless the studios come up with a warrant.

While I am pleased with the outcome, the reason is rather prosaic rather than ideological. As Time Warner explains, it would cost $45 per request. Given that this is 50,000 requests, that's a lot to pay without a court order.

I guess the market works after all. Who needs pesky "rights."
