Under statute 512 of the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act (OCCA) in section (c)(1)(A)(iii) it stipulates that an ISP
upon obtaining such knowledge or awareness, acts expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material;
My first question is what exactly "expeditiously" means, and if there's any precedent anywhere for arguing something was not done "expeditiously."
My second question relates to the DMCA in general. I know lots of people get Cease and Desist letters for downloading pirated content, and that these cease and desist letters come from their ISPs. I was wondering if there was anything in the DMCA (or any law) that says that, if an ISP is notified that their subscribers are pirating content, ISPs must notify them, threaten to, or actually disconnect service, or anything like that which would require ISPs to take action against their customers.
Update 1: I'm just looking for a specific point (if it exists) that states that the in order to avoid liability isp has to take some specific action against a subscriber who is downloading.
I've definitely gotten an answer to my first question and what expeditiously means, my question is with the second one. As a result of RIAA v. Verizon I know that Subpoena's cannot be used to identify the infringers and send them letters so what legal avenue are they taking to make ISP's send these notices?
