There's been a lot of discussion this week about the Copyright Alert System. It is a confusing thing! But if you like to steal things on the internet, or even if you don't, you should be aware of it, because this is the way copyright protection is going to work nationwide for the foreseeable future.


Good! It seems it will only apply to P2P filesharing! and get this... they are snooping for copyright associated file names. So that porn you download that thought was the new "Batman" movie may get you in trouble!

I have a feeling the file sharing community is going to quickly adapt to this merely altering the names of files sufficiently so as to not be detected and then link that to a code list that you can get served from. Seems they have no way of telling what is actually in the pieces of the file they detect you sharing. A filename alone really isn't proof that you shared anything at all.

I am just glad I never relied on P2P except the rare need to get some hacked program. Which other then big game titles they probably won't be on any copyright list.... I assume this is going to be like the DMCA lists and copyright holders are going to have to have their wares listed with the monitoring company as material they want protected?

Quote:a Comcast representative told Ars Technica that using a VPN, or virtual private network, will probably mask your activities from MarkMonitor--the exact quote is "I think you're right," so that's assuming the rep even knows what a VPN is. (They're private networks within the internet that have higher levels of encryption--anyone outside this "network" you've set up won't be able to see what's happening within it.)

It's probably not such a big deal to get around. This doesn't sound all that sinister to begin with, and actually it makes your internet provider have to do stuff, they don't like to do stuff except receive your payments chuckle.gif
