Re: The US six strike plan

I think the ISPs right now fear losing safe harbor status if they cannot out lobby the entertainment industry who will try and buy changes to the laws to remove safe harbor if they can.

Naturally with ISPs moving to overage models the ISP divisions of a company will want people to pirate to their heart's content as long as they do not saturate the node. The problem of course is the ISPs are owned by content delivery companies so its basically an internal struggle too. One division sees the net as its enemy and the other sees scheduled TV other than sports as an obsolete relic.
