    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    They are NOT closing the door....the material will still be out there for every non US person to download. What they are doing is putting a puddle with a mental problem in the front yard and if you are brave enough to go past it or trick it, then you will have access to it all still.

    This does not address why people are "stealing" things and is short sighted and stupid.

    Ding. Ding.

    But I suspect that the US ISPs willingness to do this, is so they have the legal ability to kick customers off their nets so the companies dont have to expand their networks but only boot off the high traffic people.
    Actually they are doing it after a long period of time of them trying to fight the federal government over the issue. They were losing badly as predicted, so they gave up from the sounds of it.

    I don't really want the fed, or a state government doing this either.
