Have you got evidence to back up your claim that they have something up their sleeves?
Maby they are relying on people to think it will be easier to just pay the fine (im sure thats what most people would do rather than go to court) because they dont know any better!
Me on the other hand must have a very scrupulous neighbor.
Its not what they know its what they can prove!
Also I would also like to say I dont use peer to peer software to download copyright movies anyway so I have nothing to worry about!
"In regards to the new 'voluntary' graduated response deal (where no one really knows how ISPs will track and accuse customers of copyright infringement), according to CNN, it may be the ISP directly spying on their customers. 'But now that they're free from individual blame, there's also the strong possibility that the ISPs will be doing the data monitoring directly. That's a much bigger deal. So instead of reaching out to the Internet to track down illegally flowing bits of their movies, the studios will sit back while ISP's "sniff" the packets of data coming to and from their customers' computers.' This could be a problem for people who use U.S.-based internet services. If the U.S. wants to be an internet savvy country, they still need the competition in the marketplace that's always been missing, and a digital bill of rights that isn't a sneaky anti-piracy measure."

IP doesn't resolve to a person. Wouldn't hold in court.
the court case is under way......
so is the data basing.
so if they do get a conviction,
everybody is at risk
dont rely on "anonymous ips" saving you,
they wouldn't go to court without a high expectation of success,
and this could set a president

Who owns cnet and other places that were hosting limeware and napster for everyone to download. The industry wanted people to share files just to allow the government to pass laws protecting their monopoly.
Specifically, they’re coming for you on Thursday, July 12.
That’s the date when the nation’s largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users’ bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials.
Word of the start date has been largely kept secret since ISPs announced their plans last June. The deal was brokered by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and coordinated by the Obama Administration.
