Don't worry, this will be installed at your employer's security boundary. ISPs won't implement it and I doubt many residential consumers will be interested, especially as it will likely kill responsiveness.

Re: McAfee Pirate detector
I have to agree, it will be used along side websense to protect a company from liability caused by on site torrenting. Watching streaming content does not put them at any legal risk as that is just watching, However many of those sites have high risks of malicious code in their advertising which would pose a threat to the company network. Of course blocking streaming sites also saves them bandwidth, And the fact people are there to work not watch the latest cam job of a hollywood movie.
I wonder if it will block those websites that let you watch out of region Youtube, As that is not really piracy but I imagine the content owners greatly dislike it. -- [65 Arcanist]Filan(High Elf) Zone: Broadband Reports
