Re: what about the 7th time ?
said by anonphoneuse :The monitoring group can still go to court and force the ISP to turn over the info. But would be forced to do it legally, with an individual subpoena, & not the copyright-amatic way they often do now. The ISP still has to obey legal court orders.
i have read that nothing happens after the sixth strike.
i have also read that ISPs will not be turning over information on subscribers.
so does that mean its a good idea to get the six strikes over with to enjoy unrestricted internet from that point on?
perhaps we(the people of the internet) should compile a list of likely false detected downloads allowing people to legally hop through the six strikes without actually pirating anything.
But that isn't the point of the 6 strikes process. It is to greatly REDUCE the numbers of people infringing copyright. If copyright infringement is reduced say by a very conservative 50%, the RIAA & MPAA are ahead of the game. It is all a numbers game. The die-hard ingringement addicts will find a way to beat the system, but this will discourage the occassional infinger - which is the whole reason for 6 strikes.
We will still see the posts from the hackers and the die-hards who download more music than they can listen to in a lifetime bragging how easy they beat the system. But who cares - the RIAA really doesn't.
I will be perfectly happy if the budget cuts specified in the Budget Control Act go into effect. 3 cheers for the sequester. Take the money from the drunken federal spenders.
