[quote:Anonymous Coward 19198791:MV8yMTU1MTI1XzM2NDQzMDI3XzVDNkFGNDM=] There is an extremely simple, easy and cheap solution : Charge ALL internet account holders a modest 'media levy' via their ISP bills. About $1 a month each from a couple of billion account holders would more than cover it. Then divvy that up according to the media downloaded. Or according to real-world market share. Or the amount they pay performers. Whatever. IRL libraries do this. Performing rights licenses do this. Municipal services (property tax etc) do this. They will continue to do this forever. Because it works so well. [i]The business model is there, tried and proven for years.[/i] But instead, as has been pointed out endlessly by digital media experts, the 'traditional' entertainment industry has refused to embrace the possibilities and potential that the internet offers them for monetizing their output and good PR. This antiquated 'solution' ensures at least: - consumer alienation en mass - stifling creativity - criminalizing behavior that the web actually encourages and was set up for (sharing info in all sorts of media) - huge opportunities for abuse against individuals, most of whom have no idea how to understand such abuse let alone defend themselves against it - defeating the whole object of the web as envisaged by its founders and embraced by its users Thin end of the wedge. With such outmoded and punitive restrictions, the internet is destined to become a pale shadow of what it was and what it could become.

Comcast revealed today how it will deal with customers who receive multiple warnings under the newly launched “six-strikes” anti-piracy system. After four alerts the ISP will “hijack” web-browsers of suspected serial pirates with a persistent pop-up notification, making it impossible to browse the Internet. The pop-up will disappear after the customer “resolves the issue” with a Customer Security Assurance professional.
In common with other ISPs, Comcast will start out with friendly alerts informing customers that their account has been used to share copyrighted material. After four warnings, repeated offenders will then enter the “mitigation phase” during which their service will be interrupted.
Comcast has chosen a browser “hijack,” making it impossible for customers to browse the Internet, but without interrupting VOIP and other essential services.
