AT&T and Comcast: new copyright alert system
You may recall a certain plan being put into place by the Centre for Copyright Information and leading ISPs around the US. It would use a so-called six-strike program to levy harsher penalties on repeat copyright infringers.
Beyond that, we didn’t know much else except that the program could be implemented nationwide.
AT&T has introduced this system a few months earlier, and according to some sources, Comcast started the same program on Monday.
The goal of these notifications is to cease copyright infringement via peer-to-peer networks through a series of warnings, followed by possible punishment for particularly stubborn law breakers.
Comcast is the largest ISP in the US, so a change of their piracy policy would likely provide a large enough segment of Internet users with the appropriate incentives to search for information on how to bypass this copyright alert system.
Logical solution would be some sort of IP cloaking software.
How to bypass the copyright alert system?
VPN is the best way around this and it costs next to nothing. If you decide to opt-in, not only your IP address would be hidden, but also all Internet traffic would become encrypted. Your ISP won’t be able to sniff on your activity.
I don’t encourage piracy, but your traffic should be your concern. Imagine for a brief second world in which your telephone company is wire tapping your phone calls. And whenever you say some forbidden word — you get penalized. Sounds silly, right?
That’s why your internet traffic should remain your private business.
