If you liked the RIAA’s sketchy business model based on bringing the whole force of industry and government onto music users to make them cough up cash, then you’ll love this. Major internet service providers will soon screen all your traffic for what an independent service – paid for by industry – says might be copyright protected content. People said to be in violation could have service throttled or even terminated. Industry decides what is a violation of industry content, via an operation with an ironic name Ayn Rand would have loved, the Center for Copyright Information. No worries, industry provides a way for you to pay to get a review so industry can double check that they have fleeced you effectively.
