Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Haha, make that five strikes for me if this is legit. I got a warning letter last week.

All this is going to do is push more people to pay for services to block their activity, just to spite paying for the media itself.

You did? What carrier do you go through? (has forgotten our carrier honestly)

Yeah, I grabbed a movie and got a warning from Cox Cable that they had received notice from NBC Universal and blah blah blah.

Oh gods, that sucks totally. Sorry that had to happen to you.

Yeah, it's a bit of a downer and it's slowed me down a bit, but I highly doubt it'll stop me for good.

I honestly wasn't aware of this, so thank you for the info. :/

What in hell's fuck. I don't... even have words for this. :\

Yeah, and it's evidentally all downloading things, even downloading screencaptures. .wthell man!

try this. It's supposed to be a means to enter the user-created, internet-wide 'blackout' (darknet) that's most likely the future of free, private internet use.
I haven't downloaded it yet but it's in my favorites to pull out when things get scary.

I guess I'm "lucky" in that I pay for what I download. Or get movie DVDs from Netflix. Still seems like a bunch of controlling crap, though. ::shakes head::
