If you download movies and music you can not surf the web

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the association of media companies in which militate so much as the Hollywood majors record labels, has achieved a significant victory: in case of illegal downloading of movies, music and television shows, the responsibility will fall Provider and consequently on its customers.

What does it mean? In practice, who provides the internet connection will, henceforth, identify and stop those subscribers who download or share content in spite of copyright. The new system provides six different warnings, starting with an email and end up blocking in navigation through the progressive reduction of the bandwidth.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America, the damage caused by illegal downloading is equivalent to 16 billion dollars. With these measures he hopes to recoup a share. "Companies that provide Web access they want to cooperate with Hollywood because they now recognize that their future growth depends on the content," said the New York Times, Eric Garland of BigChampagne, a company founded in 2000 that has always analyzes the relationship between media and new technologies.

In simple terms the agreement became possible after many years of mutual accusations, only because the providers also want to become a distributor of content. But the RIAA did not disclose the identity of their customers who break the law and in any case, those same customers will always have the opportunity to challenge the restrictive measures.
