    Copyright violations and ISPs

    Irish ISP will disconnect Internet users after three unsubstantiated copyright claims - Boing Boing

    New law in Ireland says if someone claims you violated copyright 3 times you are b& for life. New Zealand also just passed such a law, seems like a trend.

    New Zealand's copyright minister starts screaming when asked whether it's fair to cut people off from the Internet on the basis of three unsubstantiated accusations of copyright infringement - Boing Boing

    Of course this is mostly about music piracy but the way CoS screams "infringment" it could affect us.

    I can't see this affecting us. If Eircom actually tried to enforce this I expect they'd get a severe but-whipping in court.

    Sounds like someone should claim that the people who voted for that have infringed on your copyrights over 9000 times

    really, just copying a picture from a website that isn't yours is copyright violation.

    simply put, this will fail. the internet is not compatible with copyright law

    Especially if everyone charged with policing the internet has been banned by the isp

    Jan 28 09 AT&T, Comcast, COX part Of RIAA's new 3 Strikes Plan
    Also Comcast and AT&T are on board, but shy about admitting it. Afraid subscribers will flock to ISPs that are not onboard (for now) like Verizon.

    No one will be able to disconnect anyone if the user has used a free proxy server ;)
