Section 512(c)(1)(B) states "The Service Provider must not gain ANY financial benefit attributable to the infringing material" in order for them to maintain 'Safe Harbor' status.
Due to the fact the company claims I violated DMCA, they are using the 'infringed material' as a basis to terminate my contract and charge me the $240 fee. That seems to be in violation to the above section, as they are making money by terminating me.
All that aside, how is it legal to charge me because THEY terminated my contract. I was simply accused, not charged or convicted of downloading TV shows.
Turns out it was my roommate, who was already banned by Mediacom, who plugged into my internet and made the downloads.
