So for those of us in the USA with Comcast or another affected service...is there any solution for this? Other than paying a monthly fee for a VPN (and stopping torrents...the obvious solution).

I don't torrent constantly or seed...I am more worried about others living in my house who download who knows what. Especially since the internet service is in my name.

You can't tie a person to an IP.

Haven't the courts been clear about this?

Simple...pay for your content, and tell those using your internet service, if they'd like to continue, they'll have to stop downloading content they don't own.

How is this possible when this type news isn't even out into public. This is the just source from dslreports and it's a topic that got locked. I don't see why they do this. Are they really desperate for lawsuit money?

Won't stop them from shutting off a problematic account now will it. It's not even a law just a agreement if that line is used to pirate they're gonna be more anal. Thus why I use a VPN as in my opinion what I do with my line is no ones business but my own.

And people laugh at me when I tell them I use Netflix/Steam/Spotify.

I'm sorry but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

So this whole plan is basically going to end up like the plans they have in the uk then, must say, i wonder how long before they go beyond p2p even with the obvious privacy issues.

Let's look at MS Office for example. It's not cheap. but pretty much everyone uses it. How about releasing ad ad-supported of it for for a severely reduced price, with the option to upgrade latter by paying the difference.

Office Starter?


They had an ad supported version for oems but they recently announced that theyre going back to trials.

Openoffice/Libreoffice>MS Office.

At least in my opinion.

Well, it's not your line, you lease it and pay your DSL/Cable etc. for the right to use their bandwidth, and sign a user agreement, so if they don't like what you're doing with said line, they are free to cut you off.
