You’re Not Anonymous Online & Illegal Downloading Will Get You In Trouble

illegal_downloadThe RIAA and MPAA and five internet providers have organized themselves into a coalition against internet piracy. This week, people who are illegally downloading anything from songs to movies will be getting called out on their poor conduct on the internet.

The Copyright Surveillance Machine, also known as the Copyright Alert System or Six Strikes will be put in place. People who get their internet from Cablevision, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner that like to download shows illegally will be receiving letters from their service providers, telling them that their transgression has been observed.

The firm that is doing this is named Mark Monitor and is known as the ‘ref’. Their firm consists of 100 employees that notice between 20 and 30 million copyright infringements daily. They use a variety of automated tools to catch IP addresses that are using Torrent sites.

“Will it work? We often incorrectly think that what we’re doing on the Internet is seen by no one. Simply getting notified that your illegal downloading has caught someone’s eye could be a deterrent. Many academic studies have found that the act of being watched makes us better citizens, so much so that just putting “eye” stickers on a tip jar makes us more likely to fork over some cash. Perhaps the warning system will work not because of fear of having slow Internet for a couple of days but because of the sensation of surveillance that the system will create. And if nothing else, it might notify people with open Wi-Fi that other people are jumping on their network for questionable downloading purposes.”
