Criticism Of Copyright Alert System Mounts

http://j.mp/XwVx6f  (Slashdot)

      "This last week, the Copyright Alert System was rolled out. Now
       that everyone is getting a better idea of what the alert system
       looks like, criticisms are building against the system.
       Freezenet says that the mere fact that ISPs are using a browser
       pop-up window opens the floodgates for fraudsters to hijack the
       system and scam users out of money. The EFF criticized the
       system because the educational material contains numerous
       flaws. Meanwhile, Web Pro News said that this system will also
       hurt small business and consumers."
