I for see work arounds for this. I sympathize with anti-pirating, however the tactics they use are horrible. Sue anybody and everybody. When you buy stolen property, it has to be proven that you knew the property was stolen. When you download via torrent, how are you supposed to know what is stolen or not?

I’m a moderator on one of the anime and torrent sites, and one thing people should realize is that peerguardian should be maxed to the hilt to sniff out the MPAA/RIAA watchdogs because they are there.

Now what is the difference between a copyrighted file? ATT cannot make the distinction. Try downloading an anime fansub straight after the raw version were captured and turn around within 24 hours complete with subs. That anime has not been copyrighted in North America. I doubt ATT would know the difference and can be argued in court.

The ISPs are already ahead of you - they are implementing limits on the bandwidth. It doesn't matter that bandwith and the machinery has gotten cheaper and cheaper every year. The ISPs want you to watch TV shows and movies through their cable box, not off the internet, legal or illegal. They want as much money as possible, and they walk all over us through their monopolies and buying off the Congress critters.

This is a problem when you have government sanctioned monopolies. In a true free market, we could shop around and find the ISP that best suits us, not a TV or telephone provider that was decided upon 30 years ago that managed to take over internet service as well.

People in other countries laugh at us. They have faster and cheaper internet service and you get a lot of choices. Here you pick either the telephone company or the cable company. There are a few upstarts, but they'll get bought out by the existing telecoms. I hate going to Europe or Japan and then coming back to our internet access. Unfortunately some of the European countries are headed down the same dark road we are headed down as far as censorship or other restrictions.

It won't be too far off in the future where the liberals running the telecoms and in the federal government start making a serious effort to block a lot of sites, probably in the guise of "protecting the children". Take a site like Free Republic. We talk about guns here. That would be a big no-no to a lot of liberals, and since we have such few choices for internet access, it's not like we can go elsewhere.
