ISPs Prepare for Launch of 'Copyright Alert System'

The "Copyright Alert System," which will provide notices to consumers if their ISP suspects there is illegal downloading going on, will start "in the coming weeks," according to the group behind the system. "Over the course of the next two months, each participating ISP expects to begin rolling out its version of the CAS," according to the Center for Copyright Information, but an exact date for launch will be up to the ISPs involved.
