"Copyright Alert System" To Begin 2-25-13; Big Brother To Break In On Your Computer, Educate You

New anti-piracy system will hit U.S. Internet users next week dailydot.com

Starting next week, most U.S. Internet users will be subject to a new copyright enforcement system that could slow the Internet to a crawl and force violators to take educational courses...the Copyright Alert System (CAS)...the five participating Internet service providers (ISPs) will start the controversial program Monday...The ISPs—industry giants AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon—will launch their versions of the CAS on different days throughout the week. Comcast is expected to be the first, on Monday.

The date of the launch isn't yet official—but it's been rumored for several weeks to be at the end of February...While it doesn't require ISPs to cut off Internet access to repeat pirates—as is the case in France and New Zealand—it will issue escalating punishments to suspected pirates, severely reducing their connection speeds after five or six offenses. The CAS also has a sleek new promotional video, wherein a woman explains the process over smooth jazz:

As the author of the above article points out, the progam is controversial, which is no surprise, and probably for that reason specific details about the 'CAS' are lacking. Also mentioned in the article is that the launch has been delayed for some time with a number of different explanations given as to why. Below is a post from one year ago announcing this new "copyright alert system" as originally being set to begin in July of last year. This one-year-ago article gave a few more details than the above video about where this is actually going:

Specifically, they’re coming for you on Thursday, July 12...Participating ISPs have a range of options for dealing with customers who continue to pirate media, at that point: They can require that an alleged repeat offender undergo an educational course before their service is restored. They can utilize multiple warnings, restrict access to only certain major websites like Google, Facebook or a list of the top 200 sites going, reduce someone’s bandwidth to practically nothing and even share information on repeat offenders with competing ISPs, effectively creating a sort of Internet blacklist — although publicly, none of the network operators have agreed to “terminate” a customer’s service. -- [private] ISP's policing the internet for the NWO? Violators facing reeducation, restricted to NWO-approved sites only, and possibly total blacklisting, not to mention threat of heavy financial penalties...[see post]

When Big Brother starts popping-in on people's computers...that's truly the beginning of the end...of the net. And it starts happening next week.  Rev. 18:4
