Earlier this month I participated in forum hosted by the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee to talk about the recently launched CAS program (you can find a link to video of the full event below).
A large part of the conversation was driven by the CCI Advisory Board, including intellectual property activist Gigi Sohn, Internet expert Jerry Berman and the privacy expert Jules Polonetsky. They discussed their participation in the planning process and their hopes for the program as implementation of CAS continues. Representatives from some of our member ISPs discussed their specific programs, and Marianne Grant of the Motion Picture Association of America gave a very comprehensive presentation on the process for identifying content alleged to be shared illegally.
