no, its their network and they play by their rules.. the law would prevent them from inserting data into 3rd party servers or from masquerading as someone they are not or other marketing unfairness (such as serving their site in place of their competitors).

if you are a cox customer you might want to have a reasoned discussion with them and find out more details and whether you can reach a resolution. if they dont play ball tho you ultimately would have to vote with your $$ and switch..
