Submission + - Anti-Piracy Chief Patents "Pay Up or Disconnect" Scheme (torrentfreak.com)

Nyder writes: Sick of patents? Well, this will make you puke. This Patent: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2012/0310846.html which is from Digital Right Corp’s CTO Robert Steele. The patent starts with a general description of the monitoring and notification process.

“The present disclosure provides a system, a method, and a computer program that may mine a data stream of infringement data over a period of time, process the mined data to find correlations in the data, and identify specific sets of IP addresses and ports associated with acts of copyright infringement,” it reads.

I guess next the Mafia will be patenting the protection scheme...
