Or maybe they could stop charging the same price for digital content as they do for boxed physical content.
But Wal-Mart would never allow that.
Yeah and you can't even legally resell the digital version but you can resell your physical version. Doesn't really make sense.
That sounds way too logical.
The Hollywood logic is to *raise* prices on the digital downloads, since now they're having to pay Comcast to implement this new system.
There's most likely a second part of this system which Comcast isn't advertising here: Keeping track of those who didn't 'get legit' and selling it to the MPAA.
Here's my idea: If Comcast can implement a system where they believe they are genuinely identifying illegal downloads, and they still allow the downloads to proceed, then they should lose their common-carrier protections and be liable as an accessory to the crime.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
What's not threatening about this? They know exactly what you are downloading. What else do they monitor? All this goes to show is that the ISP cannot be trusted. They don't consider your internet traffic private. It's exactly like eavesdropping on an IRL conversation. If I got that message I would start looking for a new ISP. Well, I guess one might as well avoid these ISPs anyway since they are doing this kinda thing already.
might as well not even have internet then. They can all eavesdrop
the best thing they could do is simply make a website like youtube ot something similar and just put the movies in that and have alot of ads to make the money for them
So they'll be monitoring all of our internet traffic. What else is new?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
where is the dislike button
So they're going to be actively monitoring what everyone does on the internet...I'm not sure more Big Brother is the way to go. Not to mention the privacy rights that could be violated.
