Comcast Wants To Convert Pirating Subscribers

Comcast has a rough road ahead of it if the company plans on converting pirating subscribers over to the legal side of things. Let's all pretend for a moment we are all thieving bastards, what kind of "pop-up" would it take for you to change your pirating ways?

In collaboration with Hollywood, Comcast is reportedly working on a new anti-piracy project in addition to the current six-strikes scheme. Under the new plan ISPs will monitor subscribers’ Internet traffic and present pirates with legal alternatives through popups. The new system is still in the development phase and sources say it will co-exist with the existing copyright alert system.
