You have to believe that Comcast, AT&T and Verizon would love to do this. There are already similar laws in the works in the UK and France.
Funny, this is the same story I was planning to start a thread about.
I wonder if the ISPs have been offered some kind of compensation for cooperating in this futile effort to stop illegal file sharing? It would be foolish for them to lose so many customers by terminating their accounts otherwise. With an already huge and ever increasing number of P2P users, ISPs may be taking a bite out of their profits instead of crime, as they intend to.
"The Yomiuri Shimbun estimated that 1.75 million people in Japan use file-sharing software, mostly to swap illegal copies."(at less than 1.3% of Japan's total population I think this is probably a rather conservative estimate)
If ISPs aren't being offered financial incentives, it will be interesting to see how long they can stand to terminate illegal file sharers accounts for before they are forced to change their policy.
