ISPs to police your downloads

If you are with Telstra Bigpond, iiNet, Optus, iPrimus or Internode, it is maybe time to look for a new ISP, see:

“Communications Alliance and five of Australia’s largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) today unveiled a ground-breaking proposed scheme to combat the growing problem of online copyright infringement.

The scheme is designed to encourage a sustained and positive change in the behaviour of internet users who engage in online activity that may be an infringement of copyright laws and potentially illegal under the Copyright Act 1968, typically via peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing or unauthorised content downloads.”

Essentially it’s three warnings and then we inform on you to or some other litigious entity.

We shall how the scheme develops, if it does commence.
