For the Wikipedical link: The White House has stated its support for the agreement noting that the “agreement is a positive step and consistent with our strategy of encouraging voluntary efforts to strengthen online intellectual property enforcement and with our broader Internet policy principles, emphasizing privacy, free speech, competition and due process.”
The large majority of this “intellectual property” is swamp land.
Customers found in violation who believe an error has been made may not appeal individual errors until the process has reached the mitigation stage. At that point the customer will pay $35 and will then be informed of the number of Alerts that need to be invalidated to avoid mitigation. The customer may not question errors until the penalty is applied, and then has only 14 days in which to pay the application fee, be informed of the number of errors that must be identified in order to succeed and formally appeal the penalization decision.
Nothing like presumed guilt and having to prove your innocence and pay to do it.
