After several significant delays, the entertainment industry and most of the nation's largest ISPs are set to launch their "six strikes" graduated response anti-piracy efforts starting today. Sources familiar with the plan timetable have told both Daily Dot and Torrent Freak that six strikes starts today, and a new Center for Copyright Information website run by the entertainment industry appears to have been freshly launched for the occasion (see new video, below).

Watch your backs, homies.

See you're already falling into it. They don't hit you on proof. They hit you when "suspected." It's not a civil regulation. It's a corporate coalition.

edit: Anyways I forgot to do what I gotta. Yo don't hate mods this is hitting really close to home.

Where you go to do something about it

All you got to do is, you know, not be an idiot and don't actually pirate stuff. Until they start giving false positives over Steam that is and assume all bit torrenting is illegal stuff. In which case I imagine protesting such crap is necessary. I wish I could get a list of the ISPs doing this. I want to know if I should expect possible false positives because of Steam or not.

AT&T, Cablevision Systems, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon

Basically everybody.

And I assume this will apply to all large, non-standard encrypted files. Again, this is not a law. It's a coordinated corporate action. It says "suspected" in the fine print. Not proven.

Yea sorry I mostly frequent this subforum. Still I figures this is big enough for two sources and two locations.

edit: I know many of you have things you really need a high-speed home internet connection for. But personally I'm at the point where I can successfully cut it off without a hit to social interaction. So IMO it's really something to consider in this case.

IT is what it is but if the MPAA and RIAA are right about use "no good dirty steeling internet losers that do not pay" there words not mine theirs a problem.
No one will be online not congress nor even members of there own organizations seeing as they were all caught with there dirty little hand in the cookie jar
that is illegal downloading. What will happen to the isp and the million lost and the countless headaches that come from a system like this and it works so well around the world like french

date when the next one airs

I wonder how long this will last. Sadly at the moment my only options that im aware of as far as ISPs are concerned are comcast and AT&T. Gonna have to check into more providers and see if I can find one that doesnt support this garbage.

People thinking "I don't pirate so this won't affect me" aren't taking this seriously enough. All they have to do is suspect you of pirating and it counts as a strike. After a few strikes they can begin to throttle your connection. Did I mention that it costs $35 to contest a strike?

With so much money invested into these "anti-piracy" endeavors it makes sense we won't be seeing any improvement on our nation's internet speed.

Shocked this has not happened sooner, I guess it takes more than one elephant (Comcast and their shaping/throttling) to keep customers from jumping service when policy like this is introduced. I don't believe the ISPs give a crap about copyright law, they believe in operation cost, and if they can save the bandwidth pirates use on their network its a win for them.

They just didn't want to lose customers, but who are you going to switch to now?

I've been around a long time, piracy used to be a back alley thing, having massive websites saying "come and get it" does seem wrong. But I don't cry for Lars Ulrich when they say they can't afford to live because a kid pirates their music. I bought Ride the Lighting 4 times, and Kill em All at least twice in my life, but when he whined like a baby I stopped liking Metallica so they got 0 more sales from me.

When I read about this thing, I think of the South Park episode and the "Museum of Tolerance".

Someone less eager to enforce these sort of things.

Just because most ISPs are a party to this does not mean it will always be applied equally.
