Since this website discriminates against newew members, I am forced to post this here. Today, Monday, February 25, 2013, a new plan has been issued to
stop piracy. This is called the Sixth Strike Initiative. this is made to stop illegal downloading.
The first two alerts come in the form of innocuous emails letting the account owner know of the activity and suggesting alternate legal ways to
download content. The next two alerts are more stern, requiring account owners to acknowledge receipt of the alert. If those first four alerts fail to
deter illegal downloading, the fifth and sixth alerts contain "mitigation measures," which range at ISPs' discretion from mandatory copyright
tutorials to 48-hour severe reductions in Internet speed. No ISP will completely terminate Internet service under CAS, regardless of the number of
strikes an account holder racks up.
The counter-piracy regime includes a rebuttal mechanism: Primary account holders can appeal allegations of illegal downloading for a $35 fee. Should
they win their appeal, that fee — which is ostensibly to avoid frivolous appeals — is waived. Customers who prove financial hardship can also have
the fee waived.
hope this isn't overlooked
