‘Copyright cop’ anti-piracy ISP system delayed once again

July 13th, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Internet service providers are still planning to implement their plan to kick software pirates off their networks… at some point. The Daily Dot reports that the Copyright Alerts System (CAS) being designed by major ISPs has been once again delayed despite some media reports that it was supposed to launch this week. But that doesn’t mean pirates should rest too easy since the new “copyright cop” system — which uses a “six strikes and you’re out” notification system to warn alleged pirates six separate times before their service is degraded or temporarily revoked — is still slated to come online by the end of the year.

“We do not intend to launch until we are confident that the program is consumer friendly,” CAS spokeswoman Caroline Langdale told the Dot. “We expect our implementation to begin later this year, with each of the ISPs launching at potentially overlapping but different times.” Major American ISPs AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon are all part of the six-strikes coalition.
