Personally, I think it’s flawed. It targets all P2P downloads, regardless of whether or not they are actually involved in piracy. This is a problem for me, as I regularly use BitTorrent to quickly download disk images of *nix and related software.
But that’s just my opinion. And hey, maybe it’ll work out after all.
Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free, you are a pirate.
Well, I’m much in favor of this. Finally, we have the actually copyright holders and ISPs taking action like they say they want to instead of running crying to Washington.
I don’t see where it says it targets all P2P downloads. It says they’ll be monitoring P2P downloads for copyright violations, but it doesn’t say how.
I just hope they have a damn good appeal process.
idk if i like this
I’m wondering how effective this will actually be and what they’ll be doing to track down people who are pirating. I don’t want to write this off and say it won’t work right away, and I do like that the “warning notices” will include legal alternatives to digitally using copyrighted property. Let’s just see where this goes.
hooray for wiretaps!
People will find a way around it, I give it less than a week after implementation.
