This week, after more than a year and a half in the works, Comcast and four other major U.S. broadband providers -- Time Warner Cable, AT&T, Verizon Communications and Cablevision Systems -- have begun alerting subscribers suspected of illegally sharing or downloading copyrighted content over peer-to-peer networks, under the media industry-led "six strikes" program.
On Wednesday, Comcast provided details of how it will carry out the Center for Copyright Information's Copyright Alert System.
In the first two instances, Comcast's Xfinity Internet users suspected of copyright infringement will receive "information-focused alerts" via both in-browser alerts and emails, Susan Jin Davis, Comcast Cable's vice president of strategic services for communications and data services, wrote in a blog post. Alerts 3 and 4 will be more strongly worded "warning-focused alerts."
