I like in the UK, but I know we have signed this agreement too, so it's only a matter of time I think

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly.

Fox news confirms this:

Hello, hello

I'm alive! And rather slack at updating, sorry about that! So I finally have some pictures of my new room, all decorated now. The pictures might be a bit all over the place, but my mother's camera skills are… erm… well useless lol

So, very picture heavy below, so be warned! )
