Too Long; Didn't Read

Charter Communications has filed a patent application for a technology that can detect and ban rogue devices on its network. This can help to block orphan and cloned modems, which connect without permission. The same technology can also be used to ban piracy-linked devices, such as illicit streaming boxes. The patent has yet to be granted and whether Charter plans to use the anti-piracy tool as a bargaining chip in the ongoing piracy lawsuits the company is involved in. In theory, the patent could come in handy as a chip chip in negotiations the company would like to use it in court.
