The content industry in U.S. is gradually pushing the government to clamp down on online piracy. While bills like SOPA and PIPA were trashed, we are still in imminent danger of the famous ‘six-strikes’ scheme. And as if part of the scheme, different anti-piracy companies are now monitoring thousands of torrents.

Two companies which seem to be working diligently on this front are BayTSP and Peer Media. Both of these anti-piracy companies are well-known because in the past too, big-wigs of the content industry have hired them to keep an eye on online pirates.

Now, it has been found that there has been a significant spike in the activities of these two companies over the past few months. They have been connecting to thousands of torrents which is essentially part of the process to keep an eye on users’ torrent-downloading trends and habits.

For instance, in just one month, BayTSP connected to a total of 3,657 torrent while Peer Media connected to 3,752 torrents in the same time. The prevalent notion is that we can expect the U.S. government to implement the six-strike scheme by the end of this year. The scheme intends to empower the record labels and other content industry giants to warn users about piracy and then eventually have them punished legally if they continue using torrents and file-sharing sites.

The reason why the activity of BayTSP and Peer Media is suspicious is because they seem to be gearing up for the eventual launch of the six-strike scheme. It seems as if they are gathering intel to go after the users as soon as the top U.S. ISPs launch the scheme. The focus of these anti-piracy companies seems to be torrents related to TV shows and movies.

If you are downloading movies from torrents while being in U.S., there is a high likeliness that you are being watched right now.
