The graduated response system was postponed a few times for various reasons, but now ISPs throughout the country (including AT&T, Comcast, TWC and Verizon), along with the outfit responsible with tracking down infringers, are ready to enforce a “six-strikes” system of notifications and punishments.
CCI (the Center for Copyright Information) will be supervising the entire process under the aegis of the entertainment industry. Aside from the largest Internet service providers in the world, there will also be a company named MarkMonitor, which was chosen to track down alleged pirates.
In the meantime, the CCI representatives confirmed that a number of the largest ISPs are ready to send notifications but remain reluctant to make the first move. This forced the CCI to come up with an idea to motivate them by suggesting a joint-launch at the end of 2012.
The company MarkMonitor is operating under the name of DtecNet and is known to have a record to cooperating with both the Recording Industry Association of America and the Motion Picture Association of America for quite a while. In addition, MarkMonitor is gathering information in Ireland within the frames of the Irish “three-strikes” system. However, it is unclear how accurate such tracking program is: in fact, published reviews by DtecNet revealed many inaccuracies and false theories. The hopes are that the company has learned from its own mistakes.
Some independent expert has recently conducted a research on MarkMonitor’s gathering techniques, and their review will be published in the nearest future as part of the outfit’s plan to promote transparency. By the way, the company is also planning to force some of the involved broadband providers to launch small-scale tests in November.

|@Rockman: another user has told me on another tracker that VPN's do work. he kept getting cease and desist letters and after buying a VPN they stopped.|
O Im shaking in my booties. LOL
but go ahead an try to enforce this crap. when the isp's start loosing business they will stop letting the industry push them around and say to them, what right do you have to tell us what to do with our service.
@crazymichael: I think this only applies to the US isp's. but then again it might not be.
|is there a current source of info for which vpns are legit and have there angles covered on both there end and there service providers end? Ive tried several and i have a growing suspicion that some of these companies may be compromised or set up to collect and stockpile data, for instance btguard switching randomly when its set not to, to leeds england during the day. who fights for the people|
|If they stop sharing , ISPs will loose many users and their buisness will be ruined severely. Why should one pay on high speed connection if he gots nothing. I think day will come when they have to learn- they are going in a wrong way.|
|The thing is many of these actions taken by the MPAA, RIAA and others are and have been nothing more than an allegation. A claim of copyright violation - NO FILE.|
Meaning all these companies mentioned do is provide an IP, DATE, Time and file name - NO FILE..
Also having to prove the IP is the actual person doing the violations in the first place.
Courts are now seeing this and demanding as well as accused defendants telling the copyright holders produce the evidence - the file as solid proof.
This is not something new; it has been this way for decades. Say you sue some one in court that you claim owes you money? YOU will have to provide solid proof of that debt NOT JUST A CLAIM that money is owed.. You have no proof you lose...
Much of what is being thrown around by the media, pos politicians, etc. is scare tactics.
Think of all the billions of files sent via torrents.. Who is going to spend that kind of money chasing after ALLEGED VIOLATORS?
I am not even going into the implications regarding felony wiretapping laws that are more than likely broken by the copyright holders..
A person I know got a demand letter; they replied provide a copy of the file as proof for their attorney. No response back..
There is also another tactic used by the RIAA and MPAA and that is they setup their own servers and have torrent clients connect to "download" files; yet they then go after these people; BUT since they allowed the filed to be downloaded in the first place how can a violation take place?
THAT is like allowing some one you hand an item to and then scream for the police claiming they stole it..
As for me? I will do what I am doing and if I get a notice then I will deal with it; yet I won't have any files they claim I may have..
|Thnx for the great articles as always......yea its just a never ending circle of them implamenting a worthless action "six stirkes" "Five hundred strikes" its all CRAP. Wonder what there next action will be once they realize this is a loseing battle. Im sure they have or will have come up with another Crap plan to censor and monitor and ENFORCE us........LET FREEDOM RING !!!!!|
|What a load of crap really !! my isp gave me a couple of sites to look into awhile back while i was waiting for some answers to some other service's i have with them. P2P is not going away despite all the money they spend.|
|I already got 2 from Verizon, they turn me off, well I'll take my $250 a month bill somewhere else|
|been down the road with notice letters, got tired of worrying and just subscribed to a vpn. No worries now!!||
