Well, I didn't know that a industry-wide blacklist exists...!

What do you do? I have no idea...

this is a future post.. see the date in the subject.

Once section 92a of the law comes into affect.. it would only take 3 (or less?) requests from *anyone* (still to be decided in case law who anyone is) to an ISP to have a 'copyright' infringer's internet cut off. 

I'm wondering how ISPs see this law in a strategic way..
- will ISPs cut off a customer knowing that the customer will go elsewhere?
- will ISPs as an industry create blacklists of infringer's? (kinda like phone companies do but with credit checks..)
- Will there become a 'copywrite infringer check' similar to what there is now when you get a phone (credit check)?


We know how the copywrite advocates will play this, as it is completely strategically correct of them, is by picking the fights to take to the courts so that they have greater control over what becomes case law precedence.
