Let's talk about this. http://torrentfreak.com/six-strikes-...monday-130223/

Sorry if this should be in another forum such as politics, but I feel like this discussion fits here

More than anything I am curious to see how ISPs are going to monitor these things...

AT&T will block users’ access to some of the most frequently visited websites on the Internet, until they complete a copyright course. Verizon will slow down the connection speeds of repeated pirates, and Time Warner Cable will temporarily interrupt people’s ability to browse the Internet.

Will be the latest in a series of failed attempts to curb piracy. They'd be better off going all-in on streaming services and trying to figure out how to make money off of them.

It's seriously insane how little artists end up making off streaming services

I've felt shittier about pirating lately, so I have been cutting back and buying more. But I feel like they will never be able to stop people, the people who know what they are doing will find a way.

Well, luckily I don't have broadband from any of those ISPs. If anything, this may drive users to the smaller ones. My ISP now is regional and while I don't have access to everything that the big ones offer, like WatchESPN, it has definitely been the most reliable connection that I have had.
