While I’m against piracy on filesharing digital artworks, I actually don’t mind at all software piracy. Most of us From my point of view wouldn’t nowadays be able to use any specific programs on design or otherwise. Since the pricing on this kind of software is notably high mostly always. Wouldn’t you guys agree?

In any case, I highly doubt anything even remotely similar would ever happen in Thailand. You have mega-super stores that sell illegal software/movies/music/and the lot all downloaded from the internet, and of course all the knock-outs that you possibly can imagine.

To add to it, I have an iPhone 5 through AT&T with an Unlimited* Data plan.

Last month I was in the top 5% for data used, and half way through, they throttled me. My LTE speeds instantly went from 20 Mbps to 0.5 Mbps. Yes, that’s half of one. Because I was using a lot of data from my unlimited data plan, they put me at speeds slower than EDGE till the end of the month. Pretty sure dial up was faster.

Now imagine that, but permanent, and with legal actions to follow.

Instead of spying on public, why they don’t just block the file sharing websites or if they can not block it because its used for good reasons as well then they should help them stop pirated content upload to their servers in the first place.

I think its easier to spy or control on one thing (the file sharing website) rather than controlling and spying on millions of downloads.

this idea is very common for many people: let them watch me because I got nothing to hide. Good people it’s not about having or not having anything to hide, it’s about privacy.

In New Zealand, we have had something similar for a while (3 strikes).

The title of the article is misleading, your ISP is not spying on you (as far as we know). There is a reason it is P2P networks only, content owners connect to torrents and record the IP’s of everyone in the USA seeding the pirated file and then send a notice onto your ISP.

Yeah, who cares about coders not profiting from their hard work, as long as it doesn’t affect me! :notfunny:
