Graduated Response

Graduated response (also known as three strikes) is a protocol or law, adopted in several countries, aimed at reducing unlawful file sharing.

In response to online copyright infringement, the creative industries reliant on copyright advocate a "graduated response" that sees consumers sent a series of notifications, warning them they are alleged to have infringed copyright, plus additional information on how to secure their Internet connection and details of legal alternatives. Repeat-infringers risk intermediate technical measures such as bandwidth reduction, protocol blocking and, in a worst-case scenario, temporary account suspension. The content industry has thought to gain the co-operation of internet service providers (ISPs), asking them to provide subscriber information for IP addresses identified by third-parties as engaged in copyright infringement.

Famous quotes containing the words response and/or graduated:

    Tears are sometimes an inappropriate response to death. When a life has been lived completely honestly, completely successfully, or just completely, the correct response to death’s perfect punctuation mark is a smile.
    Julie Burchill (b. 1960)

    I feel like my sixteenth birthday and the time I graduated from high school, and the first time I flew solo all wrapped up in one.
