    It's not news that Comcast secretly monitors all web traffic for possible illegal activity and shuts down anything that sets off their alarms. However, there has lately been a move to push this ISP filtering one step further, and making it mandatory for all ISPs. Thankfully, the RIAA, known throughout America for taking ridiculous measures to prevent piracy, really does not see the need for the proposed solution. All the RIAA asks instead is that ISPs, instead of monitoring and filtering everything that comes their way, merely respond to the RIAA's demands to shut down certain servers and users, when necessary.

    Oh, of course not -- now that it's been proved that Sandvine's technology works, of course the RIAA will come out and say, "We don't need filtering." They've already got Comcast "permanently delaying" things, right?

    Reverse phycology. False sence of security for pirates. Of course they'll implement it into other ISP's.

    Doesn't seem so. It looks like they are blackmailing ISP's - either implement filtering (which is quite an expense) or shutdown whatever RIAA asks for... guess what is more likely to be accepted? :shadedshu
