FMC on "Copyright Alert System"

In an attempt to curb the unauthorized file sharing that has bedeviled the entertainment industry for over a decade, several major Internet Service Providers have agreed to implement a “graduated response” policy to educate — and potentially penalize — users caught illegally sharing copyrighted material online.
