Some of the largest Internet service providers, including AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast, are reportedly close to making a deal with the entertainment industry over fighting copyright infringement on the Internet.
According to the CNet’s report, broadband providers of the United States are approaching the agreement with the US entertainment industry to disconnect subscribers repeatedly accused of copyright violation. In case no party raises objections, the agreement might be finalized this July.
Although details of the plan are not revealed, it is clear that Internet providers have a number of responses to choose from. For example, the ISPs are able to choose after how many cases of infringement to disconnect subscribers. Another option they may turn to is to require copyright legislation education classes in order to resume service. The list also includes bandwidth throttling and limiting access to the Internet. As for disconnection itself, it appears to be not required under this proposal.
Meanwhile, the White House was a kind of “instrumental” in brokering the deal between the broadband providers and entertainment industry. Just a year ago it made the fight against IP theft a top priority in copyright legislation, which resulted in “Operation In Our Sites” seizure campaign. That was when the ICE has taken down over 100 domains alleged of copyright infringement.
In addition, members of Congress started to push the PROTECT IP Act, which would give the Attorney General and copyright owners the right to force third parties residing in the country to either restrict access to infringing websites or stop doing business with them.
The Recording Industry Association of America, for example, has been pushing Internet providers to sanction copyright infringers for at least three years, since the outfit gave up the practice of suing individuals for unauthorized file-sharing. RIAA’s CEO said in 2008 that the new strategy would be more efficient because it would allow to target more people at the source and move away from expensive litigation.
However, if AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast agree to enforce a graduated response regime, we will likely see its unintended consequences like an end to open Wi-Fi, as well as entire households being accused due to improperly secured router.

|I find this hilarious.|
|that mess up all this torrents and we can't use them that's hilarious|
|Will this included already received infringement letters? I've gotten at least two, maybe three. Yikes. I don't see how other people can say this is hilarious, however what I DO find hilarious is ISP's are all over what you may download but don't seem to give a rats ass about what you upload. It's a no-no for me to download the latest media, but it's just dandy for me to upload it. HAH. Now that's a knee-slapper.|
|here's a knee slapper, only re-tards, morons, and noobs get caught for piracy...if your gonna do something illegal then do it right, throw up peer guardian or get a proxy or even get a seed box there so many options that the only way people get caught is because they are to damn lazy|
|where do i get some stuff like peer guardian or a seed box plz help|
i mostly use jdownloaded but sometimes i cant find wat im looking for on my server site so i have 2 use this occasionally let me kno thanks
|@6, there are ways around those things also.|
they will loose money and then people will disconnect their internet and they will wonder why they are loosing money. they as a business deal, have no choice but to allow anything on them

|before we start peer guardian and stuff like that done cover ur ass as they can still see what ur downloading...if u read into it u will find people say it aint safe using them blocking tools, but u can allmost be certain if they do bring and when they do, some 1 will have something up and running that will cover our asses by then..well i hope so anyway..lol|
|if you ever used a packet sniffer, it doesn't work. just turn on encryption and dont use the default port that the torrent program uses and hope your isp isnt an a$$|
|@esabse my exact thoughts too! The internets inventors wanted the internet to be freedom for all!|
|if its not a law how can they do anything to anyone?|
just change providers...
the woest part is, in most countries downloading isnt a crime, only uploading...
but in the US, they want everyone is a criminal.
|I have gotten caught and sent emails for infringement. I'm not lazy, i was using ip filter in uTorrent and also peer-block. I update them daily as well. So maybe only way to be completely safe is the seed box if you choose to pay for one. I have gotten 3 letters over the last 3 years probably and nothing has happened so far. As long as you chill out right after getting caught for a few months and not download like 50 gigs a day or something then you should be alright...|
|@14, lol, i do about the same, 50+ GB a day. even paying for seed boxes, you still leave money trails behind. just like any other scam, follow the money trail|
|Soon every one will be using tor to surf the Internet. It is sad that everyone in supposedly free countries will have to what the Chinese and other people under totalitarian regimes have to do. There are no true free countries. Your only as free as they allow you to be. That is why Anarchy is the only way to g|
|CHECK OUT BTGUARD I USE IT IVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT I HAVE A VPN WITH THEM|
|If you dont want to get caught get a motorola surfboard modem 5100 or 5101 .|
Then go to sbhackers.net put haxorware on it in a couple steps .
Then scan charter , comcast ext for a mac and use it .
