Verizon Reportedly Terminating Subscriber Access Following Repeat Infringement Claims

CNET reports that U.S. ISP Verizon has begun terminating service for some subscribers alleged to have repeatedly infringed copyright.  While this is not quite three strikes and you're out – a subscriber can always go to another ISP – the lack of due process is very disturbing.

Update: Comment notes that Verizon says there were misquoted. Have not terminated subscribers, but reserve the right to do so.

    Apparently, Verizon just reserves the right to boot but haven’t done so.
