That's really interesting. This is the first I've heard of such a thing. I guess it only affects U.S. users. Switzerland has already said back in December 2011 that it won't police this kind of thing: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/12/swiss-government-file-sharing-no-big-deal-some-downloading-still-ok.ars

Thanks for the link, and good for the Swiss government! That's a very sensible approach. :)

Until all Swiss IPs are blacklisted anyway. ;)

As a "mitigation measure," you mean? *meeps* Here's hoping that doesn't happen!

That may even be workable.

It's pretty close to what's been happening, so that's good; what's better is that the ISPs haven't agreed to cutting off anyone's service. Best would be if the big media corporations would stop trying to control the 'net altogether, but . . . .
