Windows 7: Major ISPs agree to "six strikes" copyright enforcement plan

What's all the fuss about? The article says you'll be notified ... again and again and again. So what?

Anyway, it's not as though you're being caught for doing something legal. You're being "alerted" that you're violating IP rights. If you're stealing something, it's silly (and hypocritical) to complain that the owner wants to stop the theft.

I hope they are certain of copyright theft before accusing anyone who uses the p2p protocol. Although not as popular as the illegal uses there are still many legal uses for p2p.

Their evidence is always weak, the only times they have proved anything are when the accused has confessed.

Also, P2P is not the only way to obtain "content", there are various file-hosting services available.

Also, $250,000 fines? Really? Might be a sinister scheme to get money instead of sincere complaints about P2P.

The preliminary ruling referenced in an earlier post targets a specific news host (Newzbin), proven to be hosting copyrighted material without authorization, and showing that 70%+ of its content belongs to the plaintiffs. But the ruling makes no attempt to block any other hosts. So what's the beef?

I agree completely many distros for linux are downloaded that way and I would rather use the torrent method rather than the http for the reason if the download gets interrupted I can start right back up again without any loss...I don't understand why people just don't leave well enough alone, people are going to do illegal things no matter what, they aren't going to be able to deter it or anything it all about making money and that is the bottom line..

Except that it hosts absolutely no copyright content what so ever, the problem with all these rulings is that the people that are left to interpret the law are getting it completely wrong; although these type of service point you in the right direction of pirate material they do not host or provide any and are really covered under the same safe harbor protection as google and other search engines.

I'm not defending pirate indexing sites like newzbin or piratebay in any way but the law that have been used to prosecute them have been completely misinterpreted by people that do not understand.

Yeah the whole scaring money out of pirates has been tried here by lawers in the UK, ACS:Law tracked the IP addresses of clients connecting to certain torrents (which i believe they floated anyway) then got the isp's to release over 4000 names and address' and then mass mailed them threatening legal action which they could make go away for 500. Then after coming under investigation they sold all that personal data to another company who again mass mailed everyone asking for a slightly reduced ammount and included with the letter a news report from the BBC about a sucessful claim (not by them) against some woman a few years ago. This BBC report was ripped directly from the website and BBC which is copyright theft as the BBC do not allow its content to be used for such comercial puposes without their prior written consent (which they didnt have and likely wouldnt get) so the lawyers became the law breakers, haha
