A long-delayed set of anti-piracy rules could be put in place early next week. Sources have told both The Daily Dot and TorrentFreak that five major US ISPs — AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, and Cablevision — will roll out their Copyright Alert System on Monday in a partnership with the entertainment industry. Also referred to as the “six strikes” program, the CAS is a graduated alert system that starts with “educational notices;” if ISPs continue to find copyright infringement, they’ll send further reminders and finally throttle or temporarily block internet browsing. Verizon plans to slow the connections of users who have been found sharing illegal files, while AT&T will block access to popular sites and Time Warner Cable will direct browsers to a landing page.
