Comcast isn't saying yet

»customer.comcast.com/help-and-su···talerts/

Introduction
Information on the Copyright Alerts System is coming soon.

Our Goals: Education and Awareness
Information on the Copyright Alerts System is coming soon.

The above is only thing official so far. But the above link is where the data will be when Comcast finally decides to say something. Comcast has NOT launched yet, coming later this week.

And a Comcast employee had this to say in the Comcast forums:

Simply stated - No. Termination of services is not a part of the Copyright Alert System implementation. When the Comcast system is launched, information and FAQs will be provided at »customer.comcast.com/copyrightalerts.

Comcast is not monitoring traffic and relies on the copyright holder to send the ISP the notice. The objective of the alerts is to increase awareness for those who are not aware the activity is taking place on their account, provide education on copyright, and provide information on resources where the desired content can be found from various providers.

Comcast does not monitor your activities. Comcast receives notices from content owners identifying an anonymous set of numbers known as an IP address visible on the Internet when the subscriber engages in behavior the owner believes infringes its copyrights. If Comcast matches the IP address and time listed in the content owner’s notice with our logs, then Comcast generates a copyright alert to our subscriber. The content owner cannot find out your identity through the Copyright Alert System. Comcast protects the subscribers' privacy, no information is shared with the copyright holder.

The Comcast employee had this to say on the subject in about a 1/2 dozen posts:

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.

"If Comcast matches the IP address and time listed in the content owner’s notice with our logs"

How may notices does Comcast get with no matches with the logs before they start to ignore the content owner?
