Six-Strikes System Starts In U.S.

from the six-strikes-and-you’re-out-out-but-not-really-out-kinda dept.

Major internet service providers today(24th) will start monitoring the internet traffic to their customers’ computers and will warn them if they download copyrighted materials using peer to peer network. The article says, ‘A person will be given up to six opportunities to stop before the Internet provider will take more drastic steps, such as temporarily slowing their connection, or redirecting Internet traffic until they acknowledge they received a notice or review educational materials about copyright law.’ Furthermore, if you appeal the warning you will be required to pay $35 to state your case. Have the ISPs have had enough of RIAA pestering, or are they siding with RIAA?
