LOS ANGELES — Consumers who illegally download copyrighted films, music or television shows might see their Internet speed slowed or access restricted under a new industry anti-piracy effort. From: MSNBC.com

ISP's (internet service providers) in the US is done with people pirating stuff! They are acting, criminals should watch out. Verizon, Comcast, Time Warner cable, Cablevision system and AT&T, will warn users up to 6 times, if they suspect their internet is being used for illegal downloads. Warnings will be send VIA e-mail or pop-ups

Will this stop Piracy from happening?

Why are so many ISP's trying to limit the flow of data? I mean come on. It's getting harder and harder to find an ISP that will allow an unlimited amount of data per month, and now we won't even be able to enjoy that data at faster speeds. All these filters are going to do is waste money, and in return make us pay more for our internet services. I was using a 3G connection over the 4th of July weekend, and I couldn't even stream music, or video over an RDP connection. I really don't want to see the internet become filtered. I say we should keep it unfiltered, unlimited, fast, and as cheap as possible (but better quality before cheap).

Crimes will always be done, it may scare a few into quiting but I doubt the majority will

They didn't mention software. Software is pirated all the time.

Copyright infringement is out of hand, it always has been. The pirate or bootleggers will always try to be one step ahead. With this law if passed it make it much harder to hide behind your internet provider and break the law.

Will it help , sure. Will is stop it no. Will we see law suits because of this we sure will.

right chat and Canada doesn't have copyright laws. They are enforcing it more than the USA.

This isn't going to stop it but I see lawsuits coming. Unless they can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are pirating they are gonna be warning people who aren't just for using large amounts of Data.

It would have to become even more dangerous to download for it to stop to any great degree. Many people will take the risk, many will not care. I just rather be official with what I own, funny how you can get an odd look if you say you paid for software. (Windows for example)

The corporations already hire hackers to upload viruses to pirating websites. Too bad they can't make a law against not using Windows or Mac OS.

The UK government mentioned something about this a long way back, it doesn't seem that anything has happened what so ever since and I doubt that anything will in the near future anywhere in the world.

It's the opposite in sweden lol :O here they are revolting against the IPRED law (basically allows companies to access IP-logs from ISPs) Now many swedish ISPs simply delete all logs every second so that no information can be gathered

This won't do anything but scare people which is the goal of the corporate state(fascism/corporatocracy). Isn't this what the FCC's "Net Neutrality" was supposed to stop(ISP control over consumers)? I guess I was right about that then, it was just the FCC exacting it's own power over us. Pirating isn't a problem for the average person. Pirating is only a problem for the rich bastards that want to charge you for even so much as mentioning their song. God forbid, Snoop Dogg can't afford a 1000th Gold Watch. If ISPs here start censoring us, i'm just going to use a foreign ISP. I'm close enough to Mexico to access it's ISPs for an affordable rate. I'm getting fed up over this country and it's total fascism. If you corporate @55H0|_L35 keep doing this, your customers will just move to a country where they are free to live by their own rules.
