ISPs Ready To Police Copyright Infringement This Summer, Says RIAA

    Shit just might get really really really real this summer if what Cary Sherman, president of the Recording Industry Association, says is in fact a reality. During a panel discussion at the Association of American Publishers annual meeting, Sherman revealed that U.S. Internet service providers — like Comcast, Cablevision, Verizon and Time Warner — are ready to start policing copyright infringement as soon as July 12. 

    Sherman offered the following statement to CNET on how this might work:

    “Each ISP has to develop their infrastructure for automating the system…for establishing the database so they can keep track of repeat infringers, so they know that this is the first notice or the third notice….Some are nearing completion and others are a little further from completion.”
