Nsa Worried Three Strikes Will Ramp Up Encryption

As we mentioned last week, France has started their government-funded effort to prop up the entertainment industry's inability to adapt to the broadband age. They're doing this via the ingenious practice of tracking, stalking and booting P2P users (and future content customers) off of the Internet. The system is expected to ramp up quickly, up to 150,000 IP-addresses per day -- so ISPs (at least those without one foot in the content arena) are justifiably worried about the added costs.

According to Techdirt, U.S. law enforcement is also opposed to France's plan, worried that such severe punishment of P2P users will ramp up encryption use and make surveillance all the more difficult. That could explain why we've yet to see implementation of a three strikes law in the U.S., despite the entertainment industry's heavy influence on Congress and presence within the DOJ.
