Re: Six Strikes148; Anti-Piracy Scheme Starts Monday

So I should pay an offshore hosting company for TV shows, instead of the producers of the show. And here, all this time I thought it was about getting this stuff free.

If the objective of CAS is to stop the revenue drain, it will fail. But I am thinking it isn't about success, but having a legal cudgel to beat the snot out of casual pirates. The ISPs won't take direct action; but that does not preclude the rights holders from legal action. And ISP customers who agree to the mitigation efforts are actually admitting piracy; which won't go well for them when the subpoenas start to flow.
