The author reports that U.S. Senator Howard Berman will propose a federal legislation requiring telecommunication and cable operators to send Internet subscribers a warning letter if they access pirated content. Berman disclosed at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce antipiracy panel in August 2007 that he will introduce legislation as early as September. If approved, the bill will mark a significant change in federal law by making Internet service providers responsible for piracy on their networks.
