[quote:Oubliette:MV8yMTU1MTI1XzM2NDQ1ODYwX0Q0QjZGMTgw] Copyright holders need to figure out new ways to license their work so that peiple can legally access it. Itunes is close. At least iTunes music can be purchased on a computer and transfered to a non-apple device, but movies and tv shows can't. My husband has an android tablet, and there's NOWHERE to purchase s high quality movie. The Google play store has "HD" movies, but they are pixelated amd look like crap! Why pay $15 for a pixelated movie that looks like hell when you hook the tablet up to your TV? That is theft. You know what else is theft? When I purchases a DVD of Disney's tangled at a highway rest stop while making a road trip. The damn movie was defective, and wouldn't play after a certain point. We couldn't return it, so then what? I have to buy another copy? [/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.
