Three leading internet service providers said yesterday they would not resist a court order forcing them to hand over details of illegal uploaders of music. Cinepoly, Emperor Entertainment, Go East Entertainment, Gold Label Entertainment, Sony BMG Music Entertainment (Hong Kong), Universal Music and Warner Music Hong Kong are asking the Court of First Instance to order ISPs to reveal the identities of people whose computers have been used to illegally upload music. But while they said they would obey the court order, Hutchison Global Communications, Hong Kong Cable and PCCW IMS told Deputy High Court Judge Poon Shiu-chor it was up to the record companies to prove the computers had been used to upload music illegally. Only then could the court order them to abandon their commitments under the Data Protection (Privacy) Ordinance. A fourth ISP, i-Cable Communications, said it had to resist the application by the record companies as the specific undertakings it had made to its clients in their service contracts prevented it from divulging their information. The companies are demanding the ISPs disclose details of the registered users of 22 specific computers within 10 days of a court order to do so. The hearing was adjourned to Monday.
