This sucks big time!
at least i don't live in US. but sure they will follow this stupid law in here too soon *sigh¨* the problem is we don't get the series or the movies non even for buy them so what can we do then ah???
"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."
The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.
No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.
Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

I hereby announce that I condemn CI YAOI - http://community.livejournal.com/ci_yaoi - for what
they are doing.
They steal download links and files from scanlation groups, post and reshare the files without permission from the groups.
They have no respect whatsoever to the people who buy the books, scan and translate those projects.
I condemn them and I won't have anything to do with them.
I don't tolerate such actions.
I hereby state that I am not a member of CI YAOI community and I will never steal from any scanlation groups or re-share without permission.
Few from my LJ friends posted this notification - I think it's a good idea to show what you think about such low action like those taken by CI YAOI.
But you know what? I'm super curious what kind of ' people ' maintain such comm ?__? or who on earth will be their ' volunteer ' ?
I really wish to belong to few more comm that I'm not, because they have closed membership, but that don't make me hate them or make me beg & stalk their members to share with me their releases!! Be adult for God sake! If I can't have more I'm happy with what I have now ^_^
And like another year, New Year at home ^_^
Movie marathon - any suggestions for titles?
