Court Toon: ‘Six-Strikes’ System

This week, five major Internet service providers (ISPs) – AT&T, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, Verizon and Comcast – announced the Copyright Alert System (CAS), which is designed to stop you from illegally downloading movies, television shows and music. This new system, coordinated by the Center for Copyright Infringement in conjunction with the Recording Industry Association of America and the Motion Picture Association of America, involves six levels of alert – or “six strikes” – that an offending downloader will endure.
