Anti-Piracy Group Will Hijack Pirates’ Browsers

Rightscorp announced it was developing a new method to extract cash settlements from file-sharers by locking users' browsers and preventing access to worldwide web until they pay a fine. The agency also encourages ISPs to help implement the plan, saying that the system could help limit their copyright liability.

The anti-piracy group reported a net loss of $3.43m for last year and admitted it has a number of problems, including too few clients and few copyrights under its protection. Besides, the American ISPs are not big fans of copyright trolls: they prefer to appreciate valuable customers who may conclude that their ISP has been spying on them, as Rightscorp demands for settlements are delivered to the subscribers by their ISPs.

Now Rightscorp is going to streamline its business and force pirates to pay up, thanks to a “next generation technology” dubbed Scalable Copyright. The technology in question will push each settlement notice directly in subscriber’s browser. This is not all: once the Internet account receives a certain number of notices, the warning screen cannot be bypassed until the user pays up.

Although this idea is not new (some ISPs in the US already receive such warnings), so far they have never asked for money to have the locks removed. For some reason, the anti-piracy group is sure it can persuade Internet service providers to play along. On the one hand, there seems no benefit to ISPs, because such measures will only annoy those who pay the bills. On the other hand, Rightscorp claims that the system will actually be both cheap and beneficial to ISPs, and they will be able to reduce their 3rd-party liability and the entertainment industries will be able to return to growth.

analogkid6103 avatarI dont like any bit of this idea.

Crash1 avatarI can see many legal challenges to this ... it seems like a joint mix of hacking and a version of Ransomware that's deemed illegal in many countries (ie lock the victim's computer until they pay up.)
Anyway, after the first warning many of the potential victims would just start using VPN's or Proxy Servers (if they don't already), meaning Rightscorp will just lose even MORE money!

Admiral_Smith avatarIt is still hackers fighting hackers with permission from maybe computer security installations. So that means special interest groups may find permission to hack computers through this layer of permissions.

No avatarHow would this work exactly? So a browser is "locked" and you can't use it until you pay up.
Solutions: 1) Switch to another browser, 2) reinstall the browser, 3) someone will make a program to clean a locked browser, 4) restore your computer from a backup.
Also the moment they demand money, it becomes ransomware, blackmail, etc. No ISP is going to want to partner up with that.

Selsley avatarsounds a bit like hacking, so theyre willing to break the law by intentionally attacking the computers of people who break the law but hurt no one

ReservoirDogs avatarI don't think they will "hack" personal computers, i think it's all at the server level, so it means they might need ISPs for their plan, need ISPs to use their software which will block your connection

i cant see ISPs allowing that

No avatarDo what I do. Hack the neighbors wifi and use it to do all my torrent downloads. Clueless people around here are still using WEP protection. Takes me about 10 minutes to crack. Even WPA can be cracked if you can listen in on traffic on their network. Just takes a bit more effort.

No avatarThe simplest solution is to disconnect from the internet (remove the networking cable from the rear of the computer) Close the offending TABS in the browser (I close all TABS to be sure) then reconnect all back to normal...
