The Recording Industry Association of America announced that it has given the largest Internet service providers in the country a Chinese burn until they agreed to become copyright police and disconnect anyone the entertainment industry can suspect of being a pirate.
Cary Sherman, the head of the RIAA, claimed during a panel discussion prior to the annual meeting of Association of American Publishers that most of the American broadband providers are signed up to start implementing the program by the middle of summer. The RIAA said that it had taken a year of planning to turn Internet service providers into the entertainment industry’s police, because each broadband provider had to develop their own infrastructure for automating the system.
Each Internet service provider had to create a database in order to keep track of repeat infringers. This was necessary for them as they had to know which notice was the first notice and which was already the third. Meanwhile, every broadband provider had to do it differently, as they all have different architecture of their networks.
The program in question is called a “graduated response” system. It demands that Internet service providers send out a couple of educational notices to those subscribers who are accused of downloading copyrighted material illegally. In fact, it’s three strikes and the subscribers are in hot water.
The Internet service providers are able to choose from a range of punishments, which the Recording Industry Association of America calls “mitigation measures”. The suggested list includes throttling down the subscriber’s connection speed to suspending Internet access until the user promises never to pirate any material ever again. Fortunately, no broadband provider has agreed to permanently terminate service thus far.
The industry experts point out that it actually seems very strange that after the Stop Online Piracy Act failed to get legal backing, some controversial voluntary agreement between the entertainment industry and the Internet service providers manages to do the same thing. The only problem for both parties is that the pirates are still being identified by their IP addresses, by the snoops of copyright holders.

This says it all. These ISP's are going to piss-off their clients? I think not.
Most likely the ISP's will tell RIAA and MPAA or others provide documented legal proof NOT SUSPECTED or piss off.

Time Warner, Comcast and Verizon have already agreed to start doing this for them come July 7th.
|overfiend1976, You are looking right at the big picture, the entertainment industry and ISP providers that we use to get access to the internet are one in the same!!!. They own the cable companies, the satellite companies and are the internet providers. They act like they are pushed in the corner with no way out, but the truth is they are the same people. The new boss same as the old boss.|
I have commented on other article of the same topic before, there is a big change coming. in the near future all are entertainment will be online there will be no cable or Satellite to hook up to. The fight is to control the internet.
What most people don't understand yet is, the Cable companies are owned by the entertainment industries and they are charging you twice for the same thing, once for your cable bill and again to hook up to the internet. If you try to discontinue your cable service, see what happens your internet connection, price goes up by double (in my case). why, did it cost more to hook up. no because they know your getting your entertainment online. So, if your paying for it anyway then why should it matter where you get it. The big reason is that Super wi-fi is coming and cities are going to provide free access to the internet so you move to their city. A lot of cities and towns are failing and they need tax revenue and that take people moving in to their cities. Now use your free hook up to find free entertainment and you start to see the big picture. The entertainment industries are going to lose big revenues. The town have to use a an ISP provider in order to get access to the internet. so if they police it and stop everyone from having a free and open internet, then they can make everybody pay to watch TV, News, Movies or any entertainment you want to watch. How else are they going to get your dollars. I could go on to explain this further but I am getting a bit off topic.
So in closing I just wanted everyone to see that the ISP providers are the same people and its all about the profits and who is going to control it in the end.

|its all about control and money, and just use vpn, ftp, or private torrents only that require a passkey just to even get connected to the tracker. as for vpn, off the top of my head, blazin is like 8 dollars a month, and are other most likely floating around. if u are still using utorrent and downloading directly to pc with public trackers, you are asking to get flagged by your isp for p2p. i learned the hard way myself. it is mostly movies torrents that get flagged by isps, have not heard of music and programs being flagged that music, but still can happen|

|i've already received an email & a letter from time warner (my ISP) for downloading movies (the daily TBs of TV shows, music & 'other' downloads were never mentioned)...|
for the last few months i've used a vpn, & had no issues since.
america: "home of the free," unless a company wants your money, then you're...
|Granted the big ISP's; but they are not the only one's.|
My ISP is not one of them and I get faster and cheaper access than they provided when I was with Time Warner.
I was getting the crap throttled out of me due to my use not any violations... It pissed me off to the point I had my lawyer write them a letter asking where in the unlimited they can do this. They backed off.
Again if you some reason any on get cut off; or what ever has been mentioned due to being SUSPECTED should ( I will ) sue the crap out of them. It is fr cheaper to sue as a plaintiff ten defend as an defendant.
When consumer grow a pair and stand up you will see a change.
Say Your one of these Big ISP's and you cut off a client for only SUSPECTED violation(s)?
How can you win in court when they sue you? I couldn't..
It is the same as your being put in prison for a suspected crime... No documented proof you did the crime in the first place.

|How about this "creative industry" you stop the greed and keep stupid movies out of your $14 a ticket theaters and I will stop pirating. Going up on your prices for most of the crap you put out, only encourages pirating.|
p.s. You sell others creativity, not your own, and your money grubbing corporations are defiantly not an industry.
|Never had any trouble with my ISP Cox Cable......they sent a few letters to me informing me to stop DLing or UPling some movie or other...but by the time the letter was even sent the infringing file was no longer being seeded or DLed so cox took no further action......they sent a pretty lenghty letter wich basically said they wont turn any of my information over to any one short of a Court ordered warrant....iv had cox for almost 8 yrs now...... anyhow thnx for the great articles and commets as always|
|kind of lost me with your comment there post #13....lepoard geckos, crickets, and meal worms hideing in the shadows.......|

Before sleeping tight with a VPN, be aware you may still be broadcasting your IP. Understand this - it's Muy Importante! Google "Security flaw makes PPTP VPN useless for hiding IP on BitTorrent"
You'll need to dig into regedit and kill IPv6.

|TY perigree, disabled IPv6.|
twice my ISP contacted me & named the movies i had downloaded.
i cannot afford any kind of brush with the law or i can lose my license, & possibly face deportation (they throw citizenship out to anyone who invests in real estate in the US, regardless of how they 'earned' that money, but i was denied citizenship for spending 2 semesters abroad in japan???) or i would love to sue time warner
|its very true my buddy already got a warning from his isp and had to sign a document that he wouldnt repeat|

yeah right! they already try the three strikes policy several times in the past and it never works! You really think Internet service providers gonna lost a $100.00 a month paying customers when ISP already struggling for profits and low stock markets profits.

|how about we boycott the internet and use the there won trick against them. im more then positive the ISPs will pay attention to paying customers over someone whispering empty threats into there ears, So disconnect, send them a message.|

|@ AshiYoko huh do what? How do you propose we boycott the internet? How about we Brits invent the internet again (as we did before) but don't tell the Americans! Woohoo Duh.|

|I have already told my ISP that if I get another email or letter regarding infringing that I would report them to the BBB because they already don't provide me with good service and I also mentioned to them that I would cut them off and file a class action law suit against them. they haven't bothered me since then. but any way even if I loos my internet I can still boycott the recording industry LoL. they got zero brains. stupid is as stupid does.|
BTW folks....you can NOT mask you IP, its imposable. and disabling IPV6 will prevent you from getting on the web now. win 7 requires this protocol to be active. win vista yes you can deactivate this but...you will loose your Hi speeds. any older version of windows DOES NOT INCLUDE IPV6.

|@clamo, who told you that it's imposable to mask your IP?|
Get your facts right. If I wanted to, I could use your IP address as my own, but I'll leave that to the professionals and the people who are into that stuff.

|@williebk if it was possible to truly mask my IP how could you possibly use it? LoL you must be able to see the numbers to use them.|
your IP must be visible to connect to other computers or there would be no #'s to connect with.
so yes if you are connected to the web you CAN NOT stealth your IP. you can hide behind a VPN but ANY body on that vpn can see your IP.
it may not be visible at some points but some ware you can see it plan as day, usually at the connecting computer, same with pear block it don't mask a dam thing and any computer that gets blocked using it shows the IP on a screen.
I have been doing networking for a long time and there is software to mask it but you can't connect to ANY computer as it must be visible for it to find you and connect you. there I got my facts strait now you need to get YOUR facts strait.

This is what i understand about Vpns and peer block which you have missed.
Your are correct in saving an IP can be read but; if you use a VPN the wrong IP is being read thats proved thanks to the VPN; of course if checked they will see its a fake VPN but why care; maybe it can be traced back to software provide but that doesn t effect the user unless he was stupid enough to regester with that vpn site then you might busted if the VPN site gets a court order.
I love peer block and haven t never gotten a letter since; only 1x before using peerblock and since they had they proof it was dropped. And yes an IP gets read when using BP but peerblock somehow blocks troublesome ips from the MPAA / RIAA etc from reading your true ip.
So now wondering should all three be used vpn / proxy and PB or will PB always be good enough; sometimes when i use a vpn seems like its slows downloads up but not sure and is their fix!? Can i ajust utorrent to work faster with a vpn? - later . .
|Another thing has been bugging me. If Google, CBS, Yahoo, Yotube and other can stand behind the DMCA and say I didn't know they didn't get the copyrights to share (all mentioned were sued at one point or another over pirating material). They get away with it.|
Now here is the question if a big company can't check to find out what is on their site, is pirated, then how is some ordinary person suppose to know? Clearly the big companies have more resources then we do and they say they don't know?
It really shows the big picture that those who have the money make the rules.
