I have a few questions on this. A new program in place working with five major internet company and radio and movies. Isn't that the same people working with Hollywood. So HollyWood didn't get their bill in place that would made it legal for them to complain to the police like it was an actual crime. SO five of the United States Major High Speed networks are working with each other. If they "think" you might be pirating. Then they can slow down you're internet speed on the spot and make you answer a question and answer survey.
Sounds a bit extreme. still pretty extreme but is it legal and fair. For those who do pay for high speed gaming. That we could be targeted and very unfairly. What do you think?

The result was the “Six Strikes” initiative, a program that allows Internet service providers (ISPs) to directly penalize users who downloaded pirated content. How ISPs planned to punish the users, though, was left largely unsaid in the initiative’s actual text, leading to months of information vacuum filled only by the Center for Copyright Information’s vague promises that penalties could include anything from the following, according to the CCI's official description of the Copyright Alert System:
[T]emporary reductions of Internet speeds, redirection to a landing page until the subscriber contacts the ISP to discuss the matter, or reviews and responds to some educational information about copyright, or other measures (as specified in published policies) that the ISP may deem necessary to help resolve the matter.
Rules laid out by top service providers so far have offered a few more details on the penalties that could result for offenders.
Verizon recently announced it would throttle offenders’ Internet speeds without saying by how much. Time Warner Cable on November 15th said that it would restrict repeat offenders' Internet browsing “by directing them to a landing page” without specifying “for how long users will be restricted to the landing page or what websites they will be able to reach, if any," according to Torrent Freak. And AT&T, in a leaked internal training memo published by Torrent Freak, said it would block customer access to frequently visited websites “until they complete an online copyright course;” the company did not say, however, what the course will entail or which websites will be blocked.
