Re: Cue the class-action lawsuits in

I imagine the agreement to arbitration in everyone's end user license agreement would prevent lawsuits.

It only prevents users from suing providers. It has no effect on copyright-holders, who may sue file traders. Nobody seems to be aware of the hidden language of "Six Strikes", which allows copyright-holders to subpoena user information so they can sue the file traders from strike 7 on.

You have no ToS agreement with the monitoring company, or the MPAA....

Re: Cue the class-action lawsuits in

Was thinking of our Terms of Service agreements with the carrier. They can do pretty much anything they want with your data.

A nice side business would be selling it to whoever the RIAA/MPAA hires to do enforcement, who would, hm I don't know, perhaps have a profit motive to attack end users and drag them into court based on all of this so-called evidence.

Another commenter is on the right track when talking about copyright holders going after users by using this paper trail of "offenses" as possible "evidence". Sure a good lawyer and due process will disqualify it, but it's still end users getting beaten up in court at great personal expense.

There's surely a loophole.

There's always a loophole.

And the legal reason for the suits would be what? Not that a real reason is ever needed for some law firms to attempt greenmail in class action lawsuits.
