said by NOYB:That shouldn't be a problem, since I'm all but sure that deep-packet inspection, which is what they're presumably doing, sees right through encryption. This is nothing new.
Let's see them snoop that.
said by NOYB:Where did you get the idea that anyone would be snooping on the contents of data transmissions to determine what it is?
I said nothing of BitTorrent.
If the data is encrypted they cannot determine the contents.
It has been clearly stated that the six strikes plan only concerns file sharing networks, of which, BitTorrent is the most used.
said by NOYB:You don't understand this system at all.
IP addresses are just end points. Says nothing about the contents. It could be the Bible digitized, home movies, or even paid for movies for all they know.
The ISP isn't doing the monitoring, a completely separate organization is.
Anyone joining a torrent swarm will see all the IP addresses of the users sharing that particular file. If there's a torrent for a big Hollywood movie and you join that torrent, you see all the IP addresses of people sharing that movie. It's as simple as that.
Other file sharing software works pretty much the same way.
