Comments on news posted 2013-01-11 12:27:13: With the entertainment industry's oft-delayed "six strikes" anti-piracy plan finally very close to launch, some ISPs have been willing to talk a little about the new steps they'll be taking to thwart pirates on their networks. ..
Perfect - it'll clearly prove that we need to regulate it...
...and reclassify internet as a utility, coming down hard on the non-competitive, quasi-monopolistic practices of cablecorps, telecom providers etc.
TWC, Verzion, Comcast, AT&T etc - they all itching for a big fuckin spanking, it's about time to give'em hell so let's just kick in the balls this slimebag Genachowski and get him to work for his paycheck... -- [BQUOTE=[user=bicker]]Waaaa waaaa waaaa. You just want what you want and don't care to factor in what is right or true. Your perspectives are un-American, and deserve far more ridicule than I'm prepared to pile on them. [/BQUOTE]
... nothing to worry about if people follow the laws.
AT&T (and their predecessor, SBC) are not exactly known for accurate billing. If their identification of infringer IP addresses is similar to what my mother went through with SBC billing about eight years back, I'd be foolish to not worry. Following the law is no guaranty that they will be accurate, or correct, in identifying putative infringers. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
How about speeding tickets. I get a ticket saying I MUST pay and yet I have even been to court to prove my innocence. The cop is being judge and jury and handing out sentence.
You really don't understand that system, do you. You don't have to pay unless you don't want to contest the allegation of violation. There is no fee to enter a "not guilty" plea before a judge. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
