Today Comcast will become the first of six major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to institute a "six
strike policy" aimed at targeting filesharing customers. Through software developed by the movie
and music industries, ISPs will identify filesharing and begin targeting warnings and "educational
messages" on filesharing for the first few incidents, followed up with throttling connection speeds.
Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Carl Bergmanson decried the new policy saying, "The
internet has become an essential part of living in the 21st century, it uses public infrastructure and it
is time we treat it as a public utility. The electric company has no say over what you power with their
service, the ISPs have no right to decide what you can and can not download". He went on to say that
while he believes copyright infringement is unethical, it is not surprising that as the law evolves to
disrespect the public domain, that the public would grow to disrespect copyrights.
