Copyright rulings like this are a great example of how big business uses the government to keep itself fat and rich. If music/movies wasn't able to be copyrighted, these movie and record studios would be seeing much skinnier checks by now, if not being altogether rendered obsolete in the new world of file sharing. But nope, go to the government, have them expand copyright legislation... and now you can sue your competitors, arrest their consumers, and hold back an entire industry from evolving and improving with modern technology. Sad.

right, you just have to get a different provider, one of the smaller companys perhaps.....

This won't completely stop pirating. Never under estimate young people. Kids are too smart. They will always circumvent security. It will scare enough people away from torrent sites. It's not going to stop modders from downloading Halo 4 a month early.

I've been downloading like nuts from Piratebay and i haven't gotten a notice...well, not recently, got one some months back. Think i'll calm down until i can find a new route.

I'm not paying for any VPN or usenet though. Why would i pay to steal? WTF lol

So what are the ISPs gonna do when they find out 6 in 10 of their customers download torrents?

They aren't stupid enough to do anything, just scare you

Usenet sucks. Anything old always ends up damaged or corrupt. It was pretty bad.
