Yabanize:NonprayingMantis:mattwnz:Tzoi: iirc the film industry is refusing to pay the $25 fine required to get the ISPs to process a claim which is why it has been solely music downloads targeted.
Maybe they haven't found anyone downloading films and it isn't a big enough problem. I mean 25 dollars is a pretty small fee, and apparently doesn't even cover ISPs admin costs in managing it. So if was a problem, I would have thought they would have made an example of some people
Lol. It's not $25 to make an example of someone. It's $25 for one notice. And then they need to send hundreds of notices to catch one person 3 times because most people don't have static ips so they have no way of tracking individual people.
So it will cost them several thousand just to get one result.
But the ISP will have logs of who had which IP when?
Right, but they don't/won't/can't tell the rights holders this information. They won't be sending emails to Sony going "hey, that guy that was downloading your movie last month has switched ips now. You can find him at xxx.xxx.xx.xx"
