Taiwanese ISP will cut the channel to P2P users

    Taiwan has passed new legislation that details sanctions for users of P2P networks. At the same time, a massive TV advertising campaign is being launched in the country, explaining the problem of piracy to society.

    Under the new law, providers are no longer responsible for distributing counterfeit products on their networks, but now they must monitor user actions and apply the three-warning rule to users who are detected in illegal activity. After the third warning, the ISP should restrict the Internet access of the offending user - reduce the speed of the incoming / outgoing channel or completely disconnect it from the network. In theory, this rule is aimed at quickly disabling active siders, without waiting for bureaucratic procedures.

    It is still not entirely clear whether providers are required to transfer personal details of violators to legal corporations for litigation. This is not directly spelled out in the law. Apparently, this is possible only if the user submits an official protest against the actions of the provider, that is, he initiates a trial.

    A similar approach (removal of liability from the ISP and the rule of three warnings for users) is now being considered for adoption in several other countries, including France, although there it has already caused fierce opposition from the public.
