Re: Oh boy...

Actually you get the $35 back, if they find you not guilty... Another reason for them to not find you not guilty.

Please name your source, I have not been able to find anything stating that.

Something funny about copyright violations

Hollywood partly exists because film makers wanted to avoid paying licensing fees for the patents that Edison had on the process of making motion pictures.

It is kind of funny they cry about downloaders not paying, yet their industry is rooted in people not wanting to pay a license fee.

Re: Surprize!

Yes, because you should always have to answer false allegations by proving yourself innocent to the anonymous accuser, on your own time and dime.

That is written right into the U.S. Constitution, isn't it?

Re: Its a large download...must be pirated content!

I remember a story where an original video was uploaded to YouTube. That video was later played by NBC Nightly News IIRC for some segment. A DMCA takedown was done on the original video and they never got permission to air the video anyways.

Seriously, it's out of control.

"Finally, Lesser explained to Ars that consumers will have to pay $35 to the CAS to initiate a review procedure, which will be refunded if the consumer wins the review."

As I said the fact that they, like the Spanish Inquisition, get to keep your money if they find you guilty indicates to me that they are unlikely to be finding to many people innocent.
