Honestly, some one with an open wireless connection is likely a bigger threat to an ISP's network than a publisher's lawyer would be. That could be another reason for this...they are hoping to get peoples' wireless locked down for once. I can almost drive all the way across my town and not have an unsecured wireless access point I can pick up. Well, most of them are free hotspots from restaurants and such but a lot are "Linksys" or "Dlink" or other default network names.

That's why I always leave a spoof guest network open, called FREE_VIRUSES or FBI_SURV_341 or something like that. Give them wireless freeloaders something to laugh about.

Piracy is wrong, there's no two ways about it. Yet these company's and their friends rob us blind on a daily bases, over charge for mediocre products and then try fine us thousands of dollars for the sake of a few $%^&n downloaded movies. Id tell them what to choke on but this is a nice forum lol.

Personally any downloading of this nature, is usually a try-before- you buy scenario. And it will continue as long as they keep releasing games like alien vs predator colonial marines (the biggest fail i've ever seen in a game) with MAJOR false advertising........... Because that's REAL robbery.

IMO what it boils down to is that the law is the law. Personal views don't really tend to have the same authority as law. We don't have to agree with the law, but we have to understand that crossing it is a risk and there are consequences for our actions.

However what I think we can all agree on is that the scapegoat multi-million-dollar suits of the past were appalling, off-putting, and bred nothing but distaste for those seeking such ridiculous overcompensation for what are, in reality, small losses. I have this obsession with lossless rips, and piracy does not get me my "fix" with a surety of quality as quickly as a CD and the agonizing noise optical drives make.

I don't think this will do anything to even slow down the pirating. Hopefully I am wrong, I guess time will tell.

I personally have not pirated anything since the old napster/ kazaa days. I also remember loads of viruses, misleading titles, fake content, and crap quality content. Never downloaded anything worth the time and effort. Now with so many cheap ways to get good quality/ legal content, I have no need to pirate anything.

I also have never seen a good excuse for pirating. I don't think pirating hurts the companies, but it does hurt the working persons.

The problem is;

They dont offer proper online services - streaming and retail ( decent pricing ) which the market is demanding. They'll come around eventually.

Also, it doesnt hurt the companies, forget where I saw it, but highest ever piracy for 'X' time and the company showed record sales...

I never really thought ISPs would do this considering the huge amount of backlash they would receive as well as customers that they would have to cut off.

When has a company ever said, hey we don't want your money.

Can you tell me where I can purchase CD quality (.wav, .flac, etc...) online with a half decent selection? How about actually purchasing and downloading an entire movie in 1080p onto my computer? These are missing options that I want to be available that aren't available online.

I remember one of my friends who lived in a large apartment block had a guest WiFi network called "Guest_WiFi" that redirected every request to an extreme porn site, that was hilarious but sickening.
