I know a while back the music industry won in court to have ISPs monitor ALL traffic to recognize the transfer of MP3s. I also know that the major ISPs appealed this decision, because it would slow down all traffic across the net. So my question is, have they instituted this yet?
Iask for 2 reasons. (Istopped DLing music anyway). 1) An article in Time a few months back said that the Movie industry was actually losing more money than the music industry due to sharing. 2)I have a cable modem and the last few months my average DL went from 30 Kbps to 2 kbps. This speed does not change whether I DL 1 or 50 files simultaneously. I always check bandwidth before I DL something, and try to never connect to anyone with less than 600 Bandwidth.
Is everyone with broadband scared? Is it because I upgraded to KLite 2.1 and K++ 2.0.4? Help I would rather DL one file quickly than 50 and wait a week for them.
