You all know my views on file sharing from a couple of days ago, but this is bullshit. The judge in the case makes mention of "mistakes, abuse or harassment, that has yet to occur." You see, that's exactly why precedents like this are bad. No, abuse hasn't occurred, yet. Once the RIAA knows it can get away with this shit, it will continue to do so. Not all ISPs are as willing to protect their customers as Verizon. I can think of plenty of instances of ISPs and whatnot who were served notice, and immediately complied without question. Probable cause will go down the toilet, PATRIOT Act style... Which is about on par with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA).
