Verizon's "Six Strikes" Anti-Piracy Measures UnveiledTorrentFreak
Jan. 12, 2013
During the coming weeks the controversial "six-strikes" anti-piracy system will kick off in the U.S. While none of the participating ISPs have officially announced how they will handle repeat infringers, TorrentFreak has obtained a copy of Verizonís full policy. Among other things, offenders will have to watch a video about the consequences of online piracy, before their speeds are reduced to 256kbps. Also worth mentioning is that the copyright alert system will also apply to business customers.
