The content industry has been trying to devise a number of ways to counter the problem of online piracy. Apparently, to help original content producers in these efforts, the Center for Copyright information has now launched a Copyright Alert System (CAS) which will be used by major ISPs to alert users indulging in illegal downloads.

Monitoring online piracy on a global scale is a tad bit hard. However, diminishing the scope of monitoring to the ISP-level makes it fairly easy. The new CAS has been created by MarkMonitor, and is able to determine illegal downloads on a given IP through the use of multiple human and automated processes.

CCI is partnering with a number of major ISPs to have this new system enacted in the coming weeks. Among those who are on board are Cablevision, AT&T, Verizon, Timecast and Time Warner Cable.

To make the terms of adoption more favorable for the ISPs, CCI would allow these companies to implement their own versions of CAS. For instance, if a given ISP doesn’t wish to take too harsh a stance on the issue, it can perhaps tone down the monitoring of CAS.

Also, the monitoring system has been built so that it can’t gather the personal information of the users, which would essentially be an infringement of privacy rights. Moreover, CAS isn’t exactly meant to punish the users. Rather, it would warn the users if they indulge in illegal downloads, then try to educate them about the issue and finally, the ISP may decided to throttle the data speeds as a minor punishment.
