Being a file sharing subscriber of Comcast this affects alot of people with me being one of them. It will be very interesting to watch how this plays out and the decision will have a big impact on both sides.

“A San Francisco Bay area subscriber to Comcast Corp.‘s high-speed Internet service has sued the company, alleging it engages in unfair business practices by interfering with subscribers’ file sharing.”

“Other users claimed they had seen interference with some file-sharing applications. Subsequent tests by the Electronic Frontier Foundation confirmed the AP’s tests, which showed that Comcast is causing software on both ends of a file-sharing link to believe the connection has been dropped.”

“A coalition of consumer groups and legal scholars formally asked the Federal Communications Commission early this month to make Comcast stop interfering with file sharing. Two of the groups also asked the FCC to fine Comcast $195,000 for every affected subscriber.”
