Starting next week, most U.S. Internet users will be subject to a new copyright enforcement system that could slow the Internet to a crawl and force violators to take educational courses.

A source with direct knowledge of the Copyright Alert System (CAS), who asked not to be named, has told the Daily Dot that the five participating Internet service providers(ISPs) will start the controversial program Monday.

These include AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon with Comcast expected to be first Monday.

Take note that this is not designed to go after large scale pirates, many who are overseas, but instead goes after the casual user. This means you. It will issue escalating punishments reducing your connection speed after the 5th or 6th offense.

Here is a video making a lot of claims delivered in a typical "calm down" style video with a woman talking over some slick jazz music.

One word...proxy. All the heavy illegal downloaders already do it that way and this wont even slow them down one bit. This is just to scare and jack the casual, maybe even accidental infringers.
