ISPs will launch anti-piracy system next week - SlashGear


Starting next week, many of the major Internet Service Providers will be launching their much delayed anti-piracy system. The system was supposed to launch at the end of 2011, and again at various dates in 2012, but due to unforeseen conflicts, the system launch had to be delayed. Now according to various sources, the system has been “confirmed” to launch beginning on Monday next week.


The 5 major ISPs taking part of the anti-piracy system include Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner, Cablevision, and Verizon. Comcast will be the first ISP to pull the trigger. The ISPs will be working together with the CAS, Copyright Alert System, to target violating users. There will be a series of warnings, up to 5 or 6, given to users before severe consequences are imposed.

The first warning will result with violating users being forced to watch an educational video on piracy. If they continue to pirate after that, their data speeds will be temporarily reduced. Continued violation will result in longer periods of data throttling and even a temporary block on their internet service. Finally, there could be a severe reduction in data speeds to continuing violators, and a possible lawsuit.


Verizon, specifically, will throttle data connections to infringing users, and AT&T will block access to popular sites. Time Warner Cable will redirect browsers to a landing page. In the video above, you will see a promotional message for the Copyright Alert System. The system may be prone to mistakes, so if you ever find yourself wrongfully accused of pirating, you can dispute it through the CAS’s website, or through your Internet Service Provider.

Yea, this is going to be interesting to see how they are tracking and what is going to be effected, and how it will be effected..
I already used open DNS to route my traffice as it is, so I don't think I will see allot of change.. but lets see what happens...

I also use allot of streaming programs and apps. So lets see if it will effect those as well.

I'm not sure a proxy would work in this situation because no matter how you get it it will go over their network to get to you.

I just set it up in my routers and it was done. Wired and Wireless connections all have to use it.

But the traffic still goes over your ISP. You literally cannot hide unless you use secured connections end to end.

A proxy might work if your ISP is only monitoring port 80 and your proxy was using some other random port but I would except ISPs to be smarter than that.

Ha-Ha! Since I installed my two N600 Routers, I can "see" eight other networks now.
Just two of them have passwords.
