Exclamation Piracy and Verizon. Will Sprint/Boost follow?

For those of you who tether to download Illegal movies, cracked apps and such, have you read the newest anti-piracy measures that Verizon is taking? I have a feeling that the majority of the major carriers will probably follow suit. I thought this was interesting that Verizon is going to implement this in the following weeks and thought a few of you might find this an interesting read.

Personally, this doesn't bother me in the least because I rarely even use Boost to tether. It'll just be intersting to see if Sprint/Boost will follow Verizon's lead in this. Will they or won't they????

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they did.

Yep. I have a feeling that most everyone will end up doing this eventually.

Default It will get worse.

I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg. If the MPAA or RIAA provide kickbacks just watch how fast they introduce new standards to try to top each other.
