'Six Strike' System Takes Effect Monday

Looking forward to your opinions. When I apply this logic to the ellis extortion scam I don't think ms. linda has a poem to stand on.

Most knowledgeable file sharers will be using proxies, thus masking their location, or they will use un-secure open connections, therefore leaving the subscriber on the hook for infringements.. I predict there will be enough uproar over this and loss of customers from the big providers, that they will rethink this, or at least make some drastic changes..
If you wish to part of the uproar and send a message to these ISP's read below:

Click here to tell the ISPs to back down -- or that you'll look to take your business elsewhere:

http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/six_strikes/#1?referring_akid=a8139022.1472428.ayWgCG&source=auto-taf

After the first few supposed violations, they'll alert you that your connection was engaging in behavior that they -- the giant corporations that provide your Internet service -- deem inappropriate.

And then it gets really dicey: They can make it difficult for you to access the web, or start throttling down your connection.

Click here to tell the ISPs to back down -- and put them on notice:

http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/six_strikes/#1?referring_akid=a8139022.1472428.ayWgCG&source=auto-taf

From Wired:

After four alerts, according to the program, “mitigation measures” may commence. They include “temporary reductions of Internet speeds, redirection to a landing page until the subscriber contacts the ISP to discuss the matter or reviews and responds to some educational information about copyright, or other measures (as specified in published policies) that the ISP may deem necessary to help resolve the matter.”

That's right: These mega-corporations now claim the authority to undermine your Internet access -- and want to serve as judge, jury, and executioner. Tell them to back off -- or that you'll start looking for other places to bring your business.

Just click here to tell the ISPs to back down:

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

This is planned failure.   Robert is right, only innocent infringers are going to be harmed by this. Anyone who knows what they are doing will sign up for VPN services and won't be detected by the new system.   Once several thousand innocent infringers are harmed by this, things will change.

Oh Team Ellis, don't get too excited, you don't get to report the IP addresses of people you suspect are doing something wrong -- that is done by a system set up by the largest providers of digital entertainment (Disney, etc.).  You won't be part of it.  So, that plan of yours to report ELI's IP address 752 times won't work as you are outside of the system.

Of course you can also set people up with the new system.  If I know the external IP address of say a neighbor and I know they don't reboot their router very often, I can spoof their IP address, download illegal content through Bit Torrent for a few months and get the neighbor in big trouble.

Also the software used to identify copyrighted content is fundamentally flawed.

Oh and you have to love Verizon's plan to allow you to pay $35 to challenge a claim.   So, not only are you guilty until proven innocent, you have to pay $35 to say "not guilty".   

Oh and wait until 23,745 Starbucks get their internet service shut off because people use their WiFi to download movies.

This will be a train wreck and eventually shut down.  Unfortunately some people are going to get hurt in the process.

The consequence will likely be that newbie filesharers will switch to using proxies more quickly.  Those with un-secure open connections will learn to secure them after receiving their first warning. The latter is likely a good thing in the sense the chuckleheads with insecure open connections should secure them anyway. The former?  Depends.

The ISP connection providers are probably happy to agree because they already want to have an excuse to slowdown people who use more resources than average.  This system makes the copyright owner "the heavy" while giving providers like comcast, att, verison and so forth an excuse to slow heavy users down.
