Re: How Long Till Canada Gets A Copyright Alert System
Don't some ISPs already have one? IE when I was on Telus I received and email from telus that that had received a DMCA complaint and named the thing the complaint was about. Telus didn't give up my info, and said it was for notification only. (IE there policy was to pass on the notices). This was at least 6 or 7 years ago already.
The only difference I see between that the new US system, is that you lose internet access once you receive 6 of them.
I am curious to know if they have mutual agreement in regions between all isps to do this? If they don't, that's going to become a huge competitive advantage for the isps that didn't sign up for it.
edit: I think the major weakness of these systems is that they all revolve around p2p technologies. P2P (ie torrents) involves you making direct connections to other ip's so its easy for the copyright trolls to see who is download/uploading content on p2p. The system will become somewhat useless as piracy moves away from p2p?
