The “3 strikes” is a regime used to fight illicit file sharing.
Already France, Taiwan and South Korea have introduced such practices to their plans of actions and other countries are trailing behind.
USA views on such regime has effected in Perlmutter’s speech which pointed to the existence of the DMCA (disabling access to illicit content is already provided for under the legislation) and noted that there are “many conversations going on at different levels.”
Alex Curtis from Public Knowledge reported on a panel entitled: “Copyright Strikes: When Has a Pirate Graduated to Internet Exile?”
IPFI, Center for Democracy & Technology, Computer and Communications Industry Association and the UK Government were present on the panel of representatives for the report. But the obvious was the absence of RIAA and MPAA, despite being present they were a passive listener and observer in the audience.
Shira Perlmutter, Executive Vice-President of Global Legal Policy at IFPI answered the question that whether the punishment was appropriate for the crime by saying that the best would be to send infringement notices and terminating the user’s Internet account rather than dragging them to court.
DMCA (disabling access to illicit content is already provided for under the legislation) already is existent in the USA which is meant to deal with such issues.
The music industry has stopped their tactics of taking to court file-sharers. And the 3 strikes campaign seems to picking momento in Sweden and IFPI seems to be completely backing the legislation of 3 strikes.

|hmmm interesting wonder what they are cooking up for there next move :D|
|this is going to be the accepted way of dealing with pirates, three strikes and u lose your internet connection, and possible prosecution. Its a tricky subject to try and cover in a few lines, but i will have a go, lets make a global copyright company, sign everbody up to it, then tax every connection, lets say 5 bucks a month, pay copyright holders based on downloads, now peeps can download what they want, problem solved|
|To number 2.very very good idea.if only more people thought the same.And thanks sam good read as always|
|This is not good news. How can the internet companys agree with this as they will lose alot of users and money from terminating peoples internet. This will not stand in a long run. Thanks sam.|

|where has obscene gone.|
|Thanks SaM. Good info there. No matter what the respective governments come up with there will be folks figuring out ways around it. Keeps everyone on their toes and actually is the mother of invention.|
|Thats kinda random there irishlad ^^^|
Well anyway although this is better than suing pirates in court for millions of dollars i don't really think that this will follow through at least in the long run. There are two ISP's in my town both of which are both equally slow and i can tell you off hand the one im using has gained a significant amount of new users due to the other one sending notices of termination on TORRENTING. They even terminated legal torrent users. I at least hope some more privacy laws are made. No more of this we monitor you because you use a lot of bandwidth crap that's used by some ISP's

|Everyone in the world who has Internet Downloads something they should Not some time or another.|
the only way to stop this is to Distroy the Internet for good and i dont think this is going to happen Ever there is to much Money involved.
How Much money would the ISP's lose if they Disconected you from your internet
i dont think its going to be as bad as people think it is
my ISP sends me Emails all the time BUT they never do anything about it i think they want my $80 a Month if they Disconect me they will have to do that to thousends of other people then there will be no ISP.
keep your chin up Everyone
my 2 cents worth :)

|The part this article doesn't cover, and it explains how the cable companies could ever agree to this is the following: The part they aren't telling us that they are going to try to make us pay for our terminated internet connection. Thi sis how they are getting the cable companies to agree to this. They still get paid!!|
|I'm w/ TheMaxx,,, |
"BOYCOTT" the internet!!!
If it's done on a massive scale, they'll lose billions!!!
You'd see that law changed over night!
I don't see the difference between sharing movies/music over the Internet vs. a friend
letting me borrow a disc/dvd! As long as one is not mass producing it,and selling it, I dont see what the problem is???
If they take my torrents I'm canceling my Internet connection!!!
Sheeessh, thats the only reason I keep my Internet now!!!
|Now that i remember,,,|
My service provider COMCAST sent me one notice last year for downloading Will Smith's
"Seven Pounds Cam",,, They said i was reported by a third party???
I basically told them to cancel my Internet if they had a problem w/ it!
I never received another notice about downloading,,,(fingers crossed) and I've downloaded thousands of movies/games/albums,,, in the last 10 years!??!

|All things being equal, the only way that illegal file sharing may be eradicated is for everyone to be presumed guilty unless proven to the contrary. But, would this prevent those provided with advance copies of Screener DVD's (for example) to digitise them, and commence sharing.... 'ala the French Government a month or so ago.|
Although I haven't heard reports yet.... have any anti-antiP2P groups commenced cyberwarfare against those AntiP2P groups which aggressively target illegal file sharers. For example, through launching a Denial Of Service attack on Anti P2P networks ?
And,for those illegal file sharers who wish to remain totally anonymous, presumably the only option is to adopt a zero knowledge protocol and/or use proxy servers. So, which file sharing protocol is as close to zero knowledge as practicable ?

|It beggars belief that the authorities have been going on about how to stop all the dirty filthy perverted twisted downloaders of immoral filth but they haven`t been able to come up with anything to stop it. Then all of a sudden money now becomes the big issue and low and behold they are on it. Trying to stamp p2p at all costs. WANKERS I say|

|I believe that if ISP's start to do this on a mass scale then people will soon develop ways to circumvent ISP's or better still STEAL internect connections ie piggyback on other users connection. This is already happening all over the globe. I know people who do this all the time whilst travelling. |
I think we all need to put peer guardian on our connections in order to stop our ISP's being able to get info from our downloads. This might help some!
And what about people like me who do study over the internet and download heaps of webinars, teleconferences and documents etc. How will they determine whether my bandwidth was for good or evil? Especially if I have peer guardian.
ISP's will lose heaps of money and stop this very quickly. If your ISP gives you a notice, threaten to disconnect and if so be it, go elsewhere. It won't take long before other ISP services appear.
|no matter what you are downloading surely that must be private isnt the goverment and the isp's the ones that are breaking the law as they are watching what we are downloading what happend to the data protection act where no one was allowed to be seen to see what you were downloading or has that been tinkered with to suit the goverment here's to FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF WHAT WE DOWNLOAD|

|Soooo hows Canada in this forsaken and judgemental battle, I know I've been getting a few emails from Telus over copyright infringement . . . anyone? Either way I f&*^ing hate conglomerates and all they stand for.||
