Within its fight with digital piracy, the content industry has learned much about their enemy, and therefore decided to adopt a different approach to deal with copyright violation.
The CCI (Center for Copyright Information) is the result of the cooperation between the MPAA, the RIAA and 5 of the most established ISPs in the United States – AT&T, Verizon, Cablevision, Comcast and Time Warner Cable. The goal of CCI is to build a system able to handle digital copyright violation. The suggested system will work according to the common scheme: once the rights owner pin-points a pirate, they will send the pirate’s broadband provider a notice saying that the IP address is involved into illegal activity. The ISP will then send the pirate an e-mail, warning him or her about the alleged copyright violation and directing towards legal alternatives of procuring films or music.
The CCI says it’s a kind of a new model of collaboration with the film and music companies to identify allegedly infringed files and send those notices on the broadband providers. If the suggested system, dubbed “six-strikes”, works right, it won’t be seen as punitive but as helpful.
When the user receives 2 strikes, they will get a warning e-mail. After the next two strikes, the user will have to confirm the receipt of the notice. Finally, the mitigation measures will kick start only after the 5th strike, which means that the broadband provider is able to tamper with the download and upload speeds for a few days, while also forcing the infringer to watch educational videos or make them call their office to explain what happens.
In case you received copyright violation notices while realizing that you never downloaded anything copyrighted, you will have to pay $35 to an independent board which will take interest into your claims, but this fee will be refunded if you win.
Instead of simply rapping people on the hands, the content industry wants to try and give them information they need to get to content in legal, accessible, and cost-effective way.
According to official statistics, inline piracy is on the fall in the United States, decreasing from 16% in 2007 to 9% in 2010. Nevertheless, it’s still unclear whether this is due to industry’s efforts or thanks to the legitimate alternatives like iTunes, Rhapsody or Spotify.

|ok there was a post on how comcast said that they had enough of the entertainments BS so I am just amusing it was just all a load of bull coming out of there mouth just to keep subscribers.|
but just the same if it completely stops they will still find some other reason to bitch.....next it will be to pore sales as no one will want to buy at all.
|exactly hrg thoes numbers are useless, but the politicians think that the stuff they are doing is working which is causing them to gain more support, maybe by endangering vpn services by exposing how americans can get around this stuff will shed some light on the fact that piracy isnt decreasing its increasing, its just more and more americans sign up for vpns etc and route through canada or germany lol, itskind of like using vpn you are supporting the industries that are targeting free file sharing, infact its not piracy because no ones makin money selling shared stuff somehow ive been distracted from that estabilished notion from all this current bs flying around. but yeah vpns protect your privacy but give the entertainment industry the illusion that things are working in there favor now and they can snowball politicians now to support them, they hide behind the economic disaster, but they dont compensate there prices for the dissolving middle class. and i bet they know there efforts arent doing anything but pushing ppl to use vpn proxy and seed boxes. but they take the numbers and display them to politicians any way and use techno jargon to convince them that they are on the winning path. again 420|
|just noticed, dlding imax bugs torrent, dht local and peer exchanged disabled and only 1 tracker mvgroup, dld keeps going back and forth from 10kb to 500kb to 175kb, could they be trying to find out who i am through my vpn in some weird way??? make a pattern find the pattern|
|The RIAA, MPAA and the CCI (Center for Copyright Information) is the result of the cooperation between the MPAA, the RIAA and 5 of the most established ISPs in the United States – AT&T, Verizon, Cablevision, Comcast and Time Warner Cable, continue to CRUCIFY the Lord JESUS CHRIST and all His loyal followers in the name of MONEY.|
It's them versus us, they the MPAA, RIAA and all similar cronies are all of them the Devil's children whose only thought is MONEY-grabbing.
They will not go unpunished for all their misdeeds against the poor.
They will only be satisfied when they have EVERYTHING and the poor have NOTHING.
A world where we share everything is beyond their love, beyond their intelligence and beyond their comprehension. . . .
But this is to come and the internet is helping break down all the barriers set up by the MONEY-GRABBERS. One day all the world will share all knowledge, music, arts and craft, and all good things, SHARED, NOT THE BASTION OF ONLY THE VERY PRIVILEGED.
The rich don't like this and are putting as many stumbling blocks as they can to prevent a world of sharing and caring for everyone. In a world of limited resources, they are scared shitless that they might end up with less!!!!!!
Truth never hurt anyone except those who will not see and will not accept TRUTH!!!!!!
ONE WORLD, sharing, caring and NON-EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!
|PS, use Peerblock, OpenDNS and DNSCrypt and no ISP and no government can even monitor ANYTHING about you online!!!!!!|
