Just for the record

I think this is stupid and certainly won't stop piracy. And in fact there are much better ways for the music and movie/TV industry to reduce piracy, but that would require thinking outside the box and accepting new ways of doing things.

That being said all the people bringing up non existent scenarios as to why this law is bad are getting on my nerves.

it is a bad law because its asking one industry to police for another industry. I figure it like this, its not the job of the Mall to make sure that Sears is not selling fake Gucci bags causing Macy's to lose business.

and the entertainment industry will never think outside the box as long as their old business model is remotely profitable for huge profits. A big issue is the cost per unit on the internet is far lower than physical retail(see iTunes and how it altered the music industry and profits).

Oddly enough the video game industry has fully fallen in love with Steam and prices on Steam outside of a sale match that of a retail box and has not slowed it any.

That's the most intelligent thing you've said throughout this entire thread. Now stop shilling for the ISPs and grow up.

I'm not shilling for anyone. Just because I don't believe in using hyperbole to make a point doesn't mean I'm shilling. If you have to use hyperbole to make your point maybe you point isn't valid.

Where is the hyperbole?

ISP's shouldn't be in the copyright enforcement business period. End of story.

"OH noes! MILLIONS of people will be mistakenly kicked off the internet when they are falsely accused of pirating"

That's the hyperbole I'm talking about.

I guess you weren't around for the mass lawsuits.

I don't see this as a stretch at all.
