 With the Copyright Alert System implemented recently, end users who enjoy downloading music, movies and shows using peer-to-peer sharing will soon be receiving notices from their Internet service providers (ISPs). https://iway.rosemont.edu/ICS/Campus_Life/Campus_Groups/Organization_of_African_American_Students/Home.jnz?portlet=Discussion_Board&screen=PostView&screenType=change&id=932b8b77-08f7-440a-9a32-2e17827d5b4e

 

The new system, which has been developed by the Center for Copyright Information – a collection of various companies from the recording and the film industry – is being implemented through five major ISPs within the United States. Telecommunications companies such as Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint can notify customers whose Internet addresses will be detected in participating in illegal file sharing activities. A user will be given six opportunities to stop the activities before the ISP will perform more drastic measures, such as slowing down the user’s Internet connection speed, or redirecting the Internet traffic until the user acknowledges the warnings that have been issued regarding illegal file-sharing. https://ifgoiano.edu.br/periodicos/index.php/multiscience/comment/view/1159/0/306444

 

Internet users who have been wrongly accused of the illegal activities will have the option of submitting himself to an independent review for a fee of $35, and if the accusations will be proven wrong, the user will be reimbursed the full amount. The center said that the warnings and notices are “educational”, and that these will be urging users to switch to legal content sources. Going to a pirate website does not constitute access to illegal content – there has to be enough proof that the user has accessed copyrighted material through illegal downloads. http://fagro2.fagro.edu.uy/~agrociencia/index.php/directorio/comment/view/880/0/1073031

 

Content providers will be able to detect illegal downloads by putting up numbers for files that they have uploaded. For example, a YouTube video file has a unique ID, and Disney can submit a claim if it detects that the ID has been illegally downloaded. Jill Lesser of the Center for Copyright Infringement said that the system is ”meant to educate rather than punish, and direct (users) to legal alternatives.” http://journals.pu.edu.pk/journals/index.php/pjiml/comment/view/1468/0/40121

 

While the first few alerts will only be deemed educational, the next three or four alerts will require the acknowledging action of the consumer in recognizing the legality of the downloading activities that he is doing over the Internet. The fifth and sixth alerts will be expected to lead to “mitigation measures” such as controlling the customer’s Internet speeds. “Content owners and ISPs believe a voluntary system that speaks to consumer is the best way to fight piracy,” Lesser said. The center remains hopeful that the voluntary system will be able to stop copyright piracy efficiently in terms of cost, time, and effectiveness. http://edergi.cbu.edu.tr/ojs/index.php/besyo/comment/view/996/0/21835
