Has Your ISP Joined the US “Six Strikes” Anti-Piracy Scheme?

Has Your ISP Joined the US “Six Strikes” Anti-Piracy Scheme? | TorrentFreak: "The parties agreed on a system through which copyright infringers are warned that they are breaking the law. After six warnings ISPs may then take a variety of repressive measures, which include slowing down offenders’ connections and temporary disconnections. . . . only five Internet providers have agreed to send out warnings to their customers. . . AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon. . . the ISPs above cover roughly 75% of all U.S. broadband internet customers. This is significant, but it nonetheless begs the question – why are the rest of the providers not involved? Quite a few prominent names are not listed. Centurylink, Charter and Cox all have millions of subscribers, but are not taking part in the “six strikes” scheme. Not to forget the 100+ smaller providers across the United States who are also missing in action. . . . "

Meow--methinks something "fishy" here!
