New Anti-Piracy System to Hit U.S. Internet Users on Monday | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it
Starting Monday, most U.S. Internet users will be subject to a new anti-piracy system that could slow their Internet speeds to a crawl.

 

The CAS, designed as an "educational" service to combat casual piracy in the U.S., has been criticized as designed purely for corporate interests, at the expense of the average Internet user. While it doesn't require ISPs to cut off Internet access to repeat pirates — as is the case in France and New Zealand — it will issue escalating punishments to suspected pirates, severely reducing their connection speeds after five or six offenses.
