MPAA Wants ISPs To Disconnect Persistent Pirates

Requests like this wouldn't actually be so stupid if the MPAA didn't already have a track record of suing the wrong people, old people and anyone with an unsecured internet connection.

The MPAA wants Internet providers and services to take stronger actions against persistent copyright infringers. Ideally, the most egregious pirates should lose their accounts permanently, the group says. To accomplish this ISPs should be required to track the number of notices they receive for each account.
