Broadband provider Karoo has said that it will not cut off any of its customers whose connections are found to have been used for illegal downloading unless it has a court order.

The northern England-based operator has implemented a policy whereby customers will receive three written notifications to let them know that copyright laws appear to have been breached, Torrent Freak reported.

Karoo affirmed that these letters will not be accusatory in nature and will instead serve the purpose of letting consumers know that there appears to be a problem with content being downloaded illegally, which needs to be addressed.

The provider will not suspend a customer's broadband service unless it has been sent a "court order from a copyright owner taking legal action".

According to Torrent Freak, the provider said: "As a result it is the responsibility of the legal system, not Karoo, to ensure the accuracy of the information provided by the copyright owners."
