Submission + - Movie studios want automated BitTorrent warnings (

daria42 writes: The lawsuit filed by movie and TV studios against Australian Internet service provider iiNet appears to have taken a new twist, with the studios using early judgements in the case to attempt to push other ISPs towards what it has described as a "standardised automated processing system" for BitTorrent copyright infringement notices that would integrate with the ISPs' networks and automatically forward messages to customers when they were sent by the studios. Sound a bit Orwellian?
