It’s not possible to violate digital copyrights under the implications of the Copyright Alert System that was announced last year. The major Internet service providers which include Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC), AT&T Inc. (T), Comcast Corporation (CMCSA), Time Warner Inc. (TWX) and Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ), are rolling out a new service called MarkMonitor.
Through this service the Internet providers can spot illegal downloading of movies and other content. Yhis service will collect the IP addresses of people or offenders but will not collect personal information.
The collected IP addresses will be matched by the Internet providers for right addresses to send these notifications to customers to not download TV shows, music or movies illegally from the internet because now penalties can be applied.
This new warning system will properly be rolled out in the next two months where possible penalties can happen to people violating digital copyrights. The Internet service provider AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner, andVerizon are delivering the message, but the legwork is being done by the copyright owners that will monitor peer-to-peer networks such as BitTorrent.
Internet users can also get tips on securing Internet connections if someone is unaware that using his unprotected wireless network someone nearby is downloading some content from the internet illegally.
According to the Verge, if a customer feels they are being wrongly accused over internet downloads than they can pay $35 to ask for a review.
The entire system of digital copyrights was reviewed by content owners which include the Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America along with individual members including Sony Pictures, Disney (DIS), EMI, Universal, and Fox.
