Illegal Movie + Music Sharing May Soon Slow Your Internet Access

Bet that got your attention. Yes, internet users who illegally share music, movies or TV may soon get warning notices from their service providers that they are violating the law. However, if you get that and ignore it, you could be looking at a potential internet slow-down for 48 hours!

The music and movie industries are going after people suspected of violating copyright laws by swapping digital files online. Unlike the lawsuits, the latest effort is aimed at educating the casual ‘infringer’ and getting them to stop. There are multiple chances to make amends and there will be legal consequences if you don’t stop.

Consumer advocates say they’ll be keeping an eye out so this action doesn’t cause unintended problems for internet users.
