“Six Strikes”: My Letter To The ISPs

(From a letter sent via this link at Demand Progress. The “six strikes” system officially started on Monday, February 25, 2013.)

Dear AT&T, Cablevision Systems, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, et al.:

I am writing you regarding the “six strikes” anti-copyright-infringement program.

By engaging in this program, you are placing the American economy and the state of abused and psychologically needy individuals in grave danger, as well as dedicating yourself to the causes of cybercriminals and Muslim terrorism.

In your attempt to protect the interests of a few companies, half of which are foreign, un-American companies, you are adopting the policies such as those of Kim Jong Il, Muammar Gaddafi, and Mahmoud Ahmadenijad regarding political censorship of the Internet.

You, as a company, are implicitly showing support for pushing America into the category of terrorist and rogue nations, and by engaging in denial of service attacks (“throttling”, click-through ads, politically biased quizzes) against alleged infringers, you are engaging in the same organized crime practiced by Anonymous and Lulzsec, which you claim you are fighting against.

You are placing yourselves in grave legal danger. Many businesses will be subject to incorrect allegations, employees will be forced to waste time, and you will cause business damage which holds serious legal penalties and may even result in class action lawsuits.

You are also harming nonprofits and churches, including institutions which engage in matters of drug and alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, and child molestation. You are indirectly harming these clients, including sexually abused minors, physically and psychologically.

Once a customer of yours, I cannot purchase any Internet service from you for fear of my financial survival and the legal danger you would be inflicting on my business.

For the legal danger you might have forgotten to consider by participating in this criminal scheme, I suggest you read my syndicated column:


I hope you have the sense of human decency to reconsider this issue.

Thank you,

Daniel R. Quintiliani

    A couple of summers ago, I found myself in the same predicament.
    This is something that you should look into the benefits of drinking
    coffee. Just one particular way to remain encouraged and on the right course to maintaining
    physically fit is by placing a longer term goal.
