Comcast’s Crossed Wires

,----[ Quote ]
| I’m somewhat concerned to learn that the RIAA may be enlisting broadband 
| providers, such as AT&T and Comcast, to police their networks for content 
| theft. While I don’t condone software or media piracy, I’m uncomfortable with 
| Comcast tracking my every move online. Especially given their apparent 
| inability to keep their records straight. As John Aprigliano discovered when 
| Comcast misidentified him as a movie pirate:     
|     Waiting in my snail mail box for me was an unassuming letter from your 
|     favorite cable provider, and mine, Comcast. Contained in this letter was 
|     information pertaining to an alleged torrent download called “Cadillac 
|     Records.” I have come to learn that “Cadillac Records” is a movie with 
|     Adrien Brody and that their marketing for this movie must have really 
|     sucked because with what ever thousands or millions of dollars they used 
|     to promote this movie, I have never heard of it      
| We’ve heard cases like these before, where customers are assumed guilty until 
| proven innocent.  



FCC Again Wants Details From Comcast On Its Traffic-Shaping Efforts

| Comcast has already been slapped down -- well, slapped on the wrist,
| anyway -- by the FCC for violating Commission rules with its traffic-shaping
| efforts, and it could be on its way for a second rebuke. The FCC has asked
| Comcast for some more details on its newest "congestion management" system,
| which throttles heavy users' speeds for periods of time.


No opt-out of filtered Internet

| Australians will be unable to opt-out of the government's pending Internet
| content filtering scheme, and will instead be placed on a watered-down
| blacklist, experts say.
