    ISP six-strikes starts 02/15/13, and the expected results are ... (Torrent Freak)

    "The much-discussed U.S. six strikes anti-piracy scheme is expected to
    go live on Monday. The start date hasn't been announced officially by
    the CCI but a source close to the scheme confirmed the plans."

    Expected results:

    1) Legit users are harassed due to IP address mix-ups, etc. Remember
    you must pay to file an appeal.

    2) Proxy services see a massive up-tick in use.

    3) Public Wi-Fi access points in small stores, etc. are decimated.

    4) Relatively visible Torrent-based systems are even more rapidly
    replaced with completely underground and well-hidden systems.

    5) In relatively short order, the MPAA et al. will be back with their
    Congressional supporters again demanding that the Internet be remade
    to protect their obsolete 20th century profit center models, no
    matter what the costs.

    A bit more:
