It’s a matter of weeks until CCI’s six-strikes system will go into full effect. Besides AT&T (who’s plans have been revealed by a leaked document), there are four other major American ISPs involved, including Verizon. Just as a reminder, the Center for Copyright Information has been put together by US’s movie and music industries, dragging along five major internet providers – Comcast, Cablevision, Time Warner, and the other two we’ve mentioned. It’s yet unknown what kind of approach has been decided upon by the other providers, but what we know so far is that Verizon will throttle repeated offenders’ bandwidth. This information has been revealed after Verizon and Time Warner met at the New York Chapter of the Internet Society to discuss their strategy. As such, Verizon decided to send out e-mail notifications to flagged accounts, but no more than two. A third flag will bring a pop-up warning that informs the subscribers about their illegal activities, while also forcing them to confirm that they are aware of the copyright infringement.
