Submission + - Several ISP's now taking proactive steps to combat piracy (copyrightinformation.org)

JakeBurn writes: Time Warner, Comcast, Verizon, AT&T and Cablevision are rolling out a new program wherein they will be monitoring everything you download and, via algorithms, decide whether or not the download is legal. Apparently information on everything you download will be passed on to a third party company to analyze. There isn't really any news there about what they will do with the findings but it can lead to throttling your internet if it continues. Kind of interested in legal ramifications if a person's download history is made public through hacking etc.
