'Big five' American ISPs roll out six-strikes anti-piracy system

The new measures have been a long time coming, in that it was expected that the aforementioned "major ISPS" —AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon — would begin sending out these "alerts" to users by the end of 2011. As reported by Torrentfreak's Ernesto, that deadline of-sorts was first pushed back to mid-2012, and then pushed back to the end of 2012.
