In Defense of Six Strikes

Piracy 0

Deathspawner writes "It's been well-established all over the Web that the just-implemented "Six Strikes" system (or CAS, for "Copyright Alert System") is bad... horrible, worthy of death to those who created it. But let's take a deep breath for a moment. Can Six Strikes actually be a good thing for consumers? Techgage believes so. While the scheme isn't perfect (far from it), one of the biggest benefits from this system is that it introduces a proxy, and any persecution you might have easily faced prior to Six Strikes is delayed under the new program. Wouldn't you rather receive a warning from your ISP than be sent a bill or legal threat by the RIAA/MPAA?"
