Wouldn't that be "without notice from Level(3)"?
Why is it (3)'s responsibility to handle Cogent's customers? It isn't. If that was the case we'd be required to notify all downstream's when we terminate on default of contract or other reasons (as an ISP).

No I think if (3) told Cogent then they did their job. It's absurd to say that (3) was responsible for public notice of Cogent's customers or anything of that nature. That's a Cogent internal matter that they screwed up, or intentionally withheld.
