How will businesses avoid problems under ISPs' "six strikes" plan?
ehtan 45 weeks ago
ISPs are voluntarily adopting a "six strikes" plan coordinated with the MPAA and RIAA so that any time an entertainment business issues a copyright complaint, unsubstantiated or not, users accounts will be sanctioned. The first time or two will be a warning, but then they will escalate to temporary blocking and requiring participation in online "what you have done is wrong" classes to regain service. The RIAA has made it clear that it wants ISPs to shut down accounts as well,. The carriers have also made it clear that this will apply to businesses as well as individuals.
So what are we going to do about it? Block employes and visitors from accessing any site that might, repeat *might* have material the industry could claim violates their copyrights? And let us keep in mind that the industry has a track record of issuing take-down complaints to YouTube and other sites on a regular basis for content that is not infringing. How can a company like Starbucks even have WiFi for customers under this plan?
