A great way for a savvy ISP to subtly let it be known they are not cooperating and grab a boatload of new subscribers...

well, on the bright side... the article says punishment for the 3rd offense would be bandwidth throttling and/or service suspension.... not reporting you to the MPAA or RIAA so they can sue you for $5000 per song/movie.

Regardless though...still a bunch of horse-shit. If they really think this is going to change anything, they are dumber than they already look.

If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your Internet service provider (ISP) has been watching, and they’re coming for you.

Specifically, they’re coming for you on Thursday, July 12.
That’s the date when the nation’s largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users’ bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials.

The same groups have weighed in heavily on controversial Internet policies around the world, with similar facilitation by the Obama’s Administration’s State Department.

This is called wire tapping in most parts of the world.
interception of communications without the express consent of either or both parties.

Who would "Voluntarily" implement something like this knowing they would be sued?

There is NO difference between a packet for an email or a movie, or a picture or a song, until all of the packets are reassembled and reviewed.

In the Netherlands we have something similar since last month. Brein (the Dutch equivalent of the RIAA) have forced ISP's through a court ruling to stop customers from accessing the pirate bay.

In effect this has made them 'copyright cops'. The ISP's appealed the court ruling so we have to wait and see how this pans out.

I am still able to access the pirate bay through an alternative set up though. chuckle

If they werent such idiots, hollywood I mean, they would realize how much $ is out there to be made by allowing Xvid downloads of a movie say for 25 cents per.

The stupidity is they can sell a 100,000 DVDs at $10 a whack with a ton of overhead, packaging, middle men etc or sell 100,000,000 downloads at 25 cents with little overhead but they probably cant figure that one out, no media, no DVD packaging etc.

1 million gross vs 25 million net or very little overhead anyway. Geez they say, cant figure that one out, as people scratch heads.

Instead of taking down megaupload they should have worked out a deal. What they did was really idiotic, because the entire system was/is set up.

TV should stream for free with the ability to download at a later time and just embed commercials.

Net flix sucks. Last time I tried streaming it was way too slow and jumpy.

The problem I have with Whats out there for the ordinary public like on cable, netflix etc is its very limited and you cant download to watch later while in other areas on the web, there is virtually any movie or television program you want to see.

Entire TV, movie, home entertainment is ready to move on and change in a big way, but these people seem like they want to keep it as is in the stone age, well in 1995 anyway.

That said cable companies know they will be screwed if full time legal streaming and downloading goes legit. Maybe thats a big part of the problem.

If only the government acted as swiftly when it came to addressing our nation's REAL problems, like corruption, pedophilia, sexual abuse/rape, murder, etc.

I guess they can't risk losing the funding for their ritualistic, mind-progamming experiments that they carry out through the media and entertainment.

Heres a better idea. Wait 3 months from release date of dvd or cd, then go to Asda or Tescos and by it for like £4. You end up with the orig for a third of the price, saves the hassle of downloading what could be a shit copy, and keeps the thought police of yer case.
