this actually strikes me as being more loose then current regulations (assuming that you arent being sued during warnings 1-5). not to mention i wonder how tightly tracked this would all be. accumulate 5 warnings, switch isp, or simply change billing info on account
This act is supposed to stop the people that well are frankly too stupid to use Usenet. Me and my room mate download things from Usenet all the time. A slow month we will download 2-3 TB sure it Costs us about 15 bux a month+ out internet bill. It also has FULL 256 bit SSL to their servers so our ISP can snoop all they want.... Now for torrents that's EASY just load the torrent and see who your getting it from write down/take a screenshot of that screen and now they have a record of others IP address that are shearing it. As I'm sure 90% of the readers here know that a judge ruled an IP address does not point to a person so really once you get a strike just tell them that you have an unsecured connection and your not responsible i mean come on this is so easy to dodge
And this will only help VPN business and the like, resulting in higher parts of the Internet traffic ending up encrypted. With higher encrypted traffic it will also be that much harder for the gov to find what they really want, terrorist warnings and the like. If say 2-3% of the traffic is encrypted today and it will be 50-60% tomorrow, how much harder will it be to find what their looking for. Clever indeed!
Last time I looked, this administration seemed hell-bent on illegally sharing the US with Mexico, turning a blind eye to the illegal dripping of pockets through the Federal Reserve system, and last but by no means least, illegally sharing/destroying countries they have no right nor interest to be in beyond greed. But hey, don't you dare question them..and don't you dare share that file. We just haaaaaaaave to get our priorities right in this sinking ship of a nation..

IMO! Yep, the Uncle Sam they couldn't even find a bloody birth certificate for! This isn't our real Uncle Sam, it's a fraud, bought and paid for by the offshore interests who don't care whether Uncle Sam is left, right of center..all he has to do is fool enough people, enough of the time. Some people put far too much faith in the likes of Obama, and only now, as this ship sails head first into a storm, do they realise the error of their ways..when it's too late to repair the damage.
Fact is this "ship" has been gaining water since Clinton left office so don't give me any of "this administration" crap. The fact of the matter is the President is a politician and is doing what is politically expedient (since the lobbiests have so much power). The fact of the matter is anybody can download torrents using peerblock, megaupload using routers, or even avoid downloading anything at all by just streaming the content through icefilms, after all, how can they really tell that you are streaming x movie from y company?
