Over the past year, my colleagues and I at the Center for Copyright Information (CCI) have been working hard with our creative content partners, participating Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and our Advisory Board to implement the Copyright Alert System (CAS) initially announced in July 2011. As is often the case with highly technical, multi-party programs, designing, testing and refining the CAS program was, and continues to be, hard work. We are confident the time we invested to get it right has been well worth it. Our top priority has been to make sure the program works well for consumers in every way, to ensure accuracy, protect customer privacy and offer resources that answer consumers’ questions. While our work continues, I am pleased to report that the CAS will begin in the coming weeks.
