graduated response

FMC on "Copyright Alert System"

In an attempt to curb the unauthorized file sharing that has bedeviled the entertainment industry for over a decade, several major Internet Service Providers have agreed to implement a “graduated response” policy to educate — and potentially penalize — users caught illegally sharing copyrighted material online. To do this, ISPs will seek out hotbeds of peer-to-peer activity and target offending IP addresses. The policy is the result of collaboration and negotiation between ISPs and major content companies (think film studios and major labels).
