Major ISPs agree to "six strikes" copyright enforcement plan

Dont know where to put this, but I thought people should be aware of it! especally if they have kids who use P2P software ect!

American Internet users, get ready for three strikes "six strikes." Major US Internet providers—including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Cablevision, and Time Warner Cable—have just signed on to a voluntary agreement with the movie and music businesses to crack down on online copyright infringers. But they will protect subscriber privacy and they won't filter or monitor their own networks for infringement. And after the sixth "strike," you won't necessarily be "out."

eventually we will only be allowed to use "cloud" certified sources for data control and transfer. anything outside the sphere of control will be automatically suspect.

P2P will be squeezed out by the C2P

Personally, I never use P2P for obtaining videos...or for that matter, much of anything else, because I don't trust them. Still, I'm glad to see that my ISP is not among those named in that article. If I were so minded to download videos, etc. via P2P, it seems that this issue could be side-stepped by using an anonymous proxy.

That's one of the main reasons that certain agencies/organisations (Corporate and Government) are pushing it so hard.

They don't like the fact that we have the freedom to do to them, that which they've always done to us.

it'll be the opposite of a cloud - free, floating, ever changing

it will be a little black box

This is why the main stream media has always been very vague about exactly what the cloud was when they were "conditioning" the general public to accept it, I remember back over several years ago when CNBC kept mentioning the cloud but not actually explaining what it meant...being somewhat intelligent I just thought this was strange my reaction was "am I slow, or are they really being completely undescriptive about this "cloud"? Of course now I know that essentially the "cloud" essentially places all data in THEIR hands and it also allows THEM to grant and deny access at their whim.

I say death to their "cloud". Love live the PC as we know it. Where the data stays in OUR hands and we have control over it.

I had no premonitions about Cloud, and only became aware of it recently, but if it goes as some here believe, it won't surprise me, because it has always been clear to me that the internet would have to change radically, and very soon, for the Mark Of The Beast prophecy to be fulfilled. No one will be able to buy or sell anything without it's mark, and for that to happen, the internet would require a choke chain.

Doesn't bother me, I don't download anything like this anyway. And I know, I am very much in the minority on this one.

This is very upsetting, MPAA and the RIAA have way to much power if they can do that. I hope this 6 strikes ends fast
