[quote:HypnoSlaveDoll:MV8yMTU1MTI1XzM2NDQzMTIxX0VENjc2MDQx] The thing that concerns me the most about this is the invasion of privacy aspect.... Yeah, okay, sure, you're monitoring my account to see if I'm downloading any illegal torrents... But [b]WHAT ELSE[/b] can they see??? My emails? My browsing habits? My online purchases? And what reassurance do we have that this type of personal data isn't compromised? In the search for pirates, who's to say Comcast (or any ISP) won't sell information about me to other companies, under the guise of 'marketing data' or some such nonsense. I see this as the beginning of the end of any 'privacy' online, in the name of stopping piracy, much like all the Gestapo TSA bullshit being done to 'stop terrorism'... My data is MY BUSINESS- therefore I will continue to use my VPN and not have to worry about anyone sifting through my personal affairs. :hf: [/quote]

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.
