If you share copyrighted files you might just get a warning from your internet service provider (ISP). Verizon Communications and AT&T have teamed with ISPs to create a new "six strikes" warning system to address pirated downloads by their customers. The system gives users six chances to change their ways. Failure to comply may result in slowed or discontinued service. Users will have to opportunity to contest a violation by paying a $35 fee. This fee will be refunded if the alleged infringer is able to show that the material was used legitimately.
