AT&T to Begin Punishing Customers

Ernesto, TorrentFreak:

A set of leaked internal AT&T training documents obtained by TorrentFreak reveal that the Internet provider will start sending out anti-piracy warning notices to its subscribers on November 28. Customers whose accounts are repeatedly flagged for alleged copyright infringements will have their access to frequently visited websites blocked, until they complete an online copyright course. It’s expected that most other participating ISPs will start their versions of the anti-piracy plan on the same date.

Who exactly are their customers? These mega-congolmerates like NBC/Comcast need to be split up, and we need more competition in telecommunications.
