US ISPs to Start Anti-Piracy Actions on July 12

Last July the Center for Copyright Information published a "fact sheet" explaining the system that will be used by ISPs so "Parents and other ISP subscribers will benefit from a new state of the art system of alerts -- similar to fraud alerts consumers receive about their credit card accounts -- that let them know when their Internet accounts have been identified as being misused for content theft" (here).

Greg Sandoval reports to CNET that Cary Sherman, (pictured) CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), said on Wednesday during a panel discussion at AAP Annual Meeting that "Most of the participating ISPs (Comcast, Cablevision, Verizon, Time Warner Cable and other bandwidth providers) are on track to begin implementing the program by July 12"

".. Each ISP has to develop their infrastructure for automating the system for establishing the database so they can keep track of repeat infringers, so they know that this is the first notice or the third notice. Every ISP has to do it differently depending on the architecture of its particular network. Some are nearing completion and others are a little further from completion".

  1. Hear that death groan? That's Lady Liberty on her deathbed as these corporate azzhats share a golf clap to congratulate themselves for being the "vanguards of security". George Orwell was right, he was just 28 years too early.
