Anti piracy measure ’six strikes warning system’ will launch this year
Arstechnica is reporting that very likely a so-called ’six strikes’ piracy warning system will come to the United States this year. The measure has invented and developed by the Center for Copyright Information (CCI), together with major ISPs and hotshots of the recording and film industry. The system will give internet pirates six warnings, where they will likely choose for a system where warning levels are increased and, potentially, download speeds of copyright infringing users are gradually decreased based on the warning level.
According to the CCI, the system should be mainly a learning experience for internet users, as the basic idea is to sent six educational alerts to users containing educational videos or text and where an user has to acknowledge receipt of the warning.
After the sixth warning the internet user is pretty much outlawed and then copyright holders could start lawsuits or ISPs could disconnect the user. The system is officially known as the Copyright Alert System and should have launched in December 2011, but was delayed till July this year. Also that deadline wasn’t achieved but now the CCI expects to be ready to launch it by the end of this year.

Considering my sister is the only one out of my siblings who has ever gotten a letter from a movie company, its a pretty low rate of getting even ONE warning. Or are they going to set up a system that hammers you as soon as you download 1 song?

They are only looking out for our best interest, in fact, we should never question their motives.

How is this supposed to stop pirates? Like it has been said many times, pirates are always going to find a way around the system. They always have.
Sadly that last part of your line is so true...they really think 6 strikes scares pirates?? Maybe they should go and talk to the Somalia pirates and tell them you shouldn't be pirating anymore because it hurts and takes money away... yeah right.....

Actually, I'm hoping this makes Windows 50% faster. Surely they can fnid a research firm to print this in a report's headlines, yes?
