"Six Strikes" Scheme May Lead to Lawsuits Against Pirates (TorrentFreak)
Thursday December 13th, 2012
Early next year the controversial "six-strikes" anti-piracy system will kick off in the U.S. While the initiative itself has a focus on educating instead of punishing BitTorrent pirates, ISPs are obliged to hand over IP-addresses of repeat infringers to the MPAA and RIAA. Commenting on this largely overlooked aspect, CCI director Jill Lesser confirmed to TorrentFreak that lawsuits may indeed be initiated based on information collected under the program.
