The fight against online piracy just gained a new weapon in the form of the Copyright Alert System (CAS) aka the "six strikes" policy. Starting today, participating ISPs like Verizon, Time Warner Cable, AT&T and Comcast will begin issuing warnings to customers suspected of using illegal peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing services that violate copyright laws. Initial notifications will be used to educate and direct customers to legal alternative content sources. If the first set of notifications go avoided, the ISP may take further action, which includes: throttling internet connection speeds and redirecting users to websites requiring acknowledgment of CAS alerts.

If a person wishes to contest their ISP's findings, they will have 14 calendar days to request an independent review by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) for a fee of $35. If the investigation finds that no copyright violations have taken place, the alerts will be removed from the customer's account and they will receive a refund for the filing fee. However, should the organization's research rule otherwise, the internet service provider may proceed with taking action against its account holder.

Isn't this an invasion of privacy?

I mean, if they can see that I'm pirating games they can see that I'm coming here or going on Pornhub and that's not cool.

The only reason you don't care is because it doesn't affect you. I bet it this happened in Europe you'd be throwing a fit. =P

Europe is not a nation.
And i guess this simply counts as investigation against criminals?

I'm sure you know what I mean. I keep forgetting where he lives and I know it isn't in the Americas.

Well hopefully they can't use offenses prior to today or everyone on this site is probably going to get fucked sideways.

Those are all internet providers, Jordan.
This is for computers.

And it obviously is for me.

1. Oh I see :3 well, I'm fine. I wouldn't call it an invasion of privacy, since they can tell what sites you go on, not what you do x3
Unless there's simply something that you receive or a site you go on that triggers something instead of them monitoring you Shocked

2. >Has shite memory, but still remembers where you live
>Feels betrayed

1. It sounds like they monitor the sites you go on, but I could be wrong.

2. I don't find America that hard to remember, but that's probably because I live here.

They don't go after you unless you're torrenting illegal things, not just that you're using bittorrent or something. Also, its up to the owners of the media to find you, Comcast isn't on the lookout for it they just enforce it when they get a notice that you were doing something naughty.

Also, its only P2P. If you're wanting to get around this, it is very easy to do so.
