Re: When did Comcast become a law-enforcement agency?
said by JTRockville:Comcast says this is a way to clearly outline what constitutes legal and illegal filesharing and to define who has control over what actions.I was kind of surprised that comcast even mentioned the whole legal content thing. They are better off just addressing the p2p bandwidth problem and let the content providers work out the legal issues. Trying to determine what is legal vs illegal at the packet level just gets too messy.
Isn't that sort of like asking car dealerships to deny sales to customers who might use a car while committing a crime?
Then again maybe that is naive, I guess if you buy into the 80% of p2p is illegal claim, it is a bit hard to ignore the elephant in the room.

But I agree - Comcast would be better off leaving legality out of the discussion.
