Comment So basically bit-torrent. (Score 1) 418

I think a problem here (among a hundred more) is that, are ISPs really going to be seeing if the material being downloaded over P2P networks are really copyrighted materials? Or does this just mean, you get six strikes of P2P traffic? If I use BT to download a Linux distro, or something similiar that is not under copyright, am I going to have to pay the $35 to defend myself? What about WoW patches? Those are distributed via P2P with a HTTP backend, no?
