    American ISPs to launch massive copyright spying scheme on July 12

    If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your
    Internet service provider has been watching, and they?re coming for you.

    Specifically, they?re coming for you on Thursday, July 12.

    That?s the date when the nation?s largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a
    new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital
    spying scheme in history, and see some users? bandwidth completely cut off
    until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted
    materials.

    Code:

    The end is near but there's always a way to get around these rules.
    Personally I see a backlash from the ISP's if they implement this.

    I'm willing to bet that at least 70% of their customers download some type
    of copyrighted material. They will lose too many customers in the long run
    and that will hurt their profit margin. You know they won't let that happen.

    Could a bot be created to overload their spying capabilities, if its used by enough spare computers and connections?

    They'll scare the dimwits into compliance, then use the dimwit's outrage at everyone else's non-compliance in order to pass heavy-handed legislation that will further erode constituitionally protected rights, given unto us by God Himself.

    Well it looks like whichever ISPs don't agree to this will be getting a lot of new customers :)

    This will never work until it becomes law, and it probably won't.

    This, whichever company doesn't agree to abide by this will generate the majority of the market.

    Lol...though. Good luck with that one
