"The much-discussed U.S. six strikes anti-piracy scheme is expected to go live on Monday. The start date hasn't been announced officially by the CCI but a source close to the scheme confirmed the plans."
Expected results:1) Legit users are harassed due to IP address mix-ups, etc. Remember you must pay to file an appeal.
2) Proxy services see a massive up-tick in use.3) Public Wi-Fi access points in small stores, etc. are decimated.
4) Relatively visible Torrent-based systems are even more rapidly replaced with completely underground and well-hidden systems.5) In relatively short order, the MPAA et al. will be back with their Congressional supporters again demanding that the Internet be remade to protect their obsolete 20th century profit center models, no matter what the costs.
