If the ISP's Were So Scared

of liability and false accusations, then why not tell the RIAA/MPAA to shove it?

Most ISPs also provide video services. I'm pretty sure they would like to continue to do that.

The MPAA doesn't sell them the content. Whether they're satisfied or not is merely pleasing someone they don't have to.

The members of MPAA do.

So the MPAA's going to tell the content providers to refuse selling their products to anyone who's an ISP?

Yea, that's going to end well for them without cable, and surely decrease piracy.......

Wouldn't be surprising. The MPAA has never been known for thinking reasonably.

Exactly. The same people that almost killed the VCR because it was going to lead to massive piracy and kill the movie industry.

Video delivery and Internet access should not be provided by the same company.

So you are going to force all the cable companies to sell off their internet access? Considering they run off the same lines the new ISPs would have to build out their own infrastructure. Yeah good luck with that.

Content ownership and content delivery however should not be the same companies.

They also will not tell the MAFIAA to shove it because they fear harsher laws purchased by MAFIAA lobby groups. If "six strikes" did not get followed by the ISPs the entertainment groups would just buy laws that did far worse things.

They do? Ask Paxio, Sonic.net, LLC or Google about how much last mile coax they are building out!

In the largest sense, I agree with you completely. We want to "carry" video services but not be the actual provider. For example we are experimenting with delivery of DirecTV over our fiber in The Sonora in San Jose. The trial is going well, but I'd like to see MORE offerings of video service added -- GoogleTV, SureWest, maybe even Comcast.

Why not? We can build out and maintain our state-of-the-art fiber plant for much less than an old creaky coax network, so we could offer Comcast "wholesale" access to the addresses on our network and everybody wins.

It's the future of data services -- open access. Build a next-gen fiber plant and sell access to any provider who wants to reach your footprint. Everybody competes for the customer's dollar and the customer only needs one clean fiber connection to access the world.

Prices go down, service goes up and people build statues of Paxio in the park! (Hey, its my fantasy and I can end it any way I want!)
