American ISPs Receive 1.1M Piracy Settlements Per Week

Holy cow! 1.1M piracy settlements a week? Can that number be right? eek!

For the first time, Los Angeles based anti-piracy firm CEG TEK has revealed the scope of their piracy monetization efforts. The company currently sends 1.1 million notices to U.S. ISPs per week. A massive number, but only a small percentage reaches the alleged downloaders.

It appears that the article meant "1.1 million settlement notices per week" but, even so, that number (57+ million a year) seem awful damn high.
