According to Globe Newswire, Clear wireless internet has signed agreements with another major ISP in a move that will benefit both companies. As a result, Clearwire will enjoy increased pricing flexibility which will allow it to increase the size of its wholesale markets and ultimately obtain more new customers. For the other company, who already has a 4G network arrangement with Clearwire, the new agreements will fund their business and allow them to keep up with a quickly growing demand for 4G. In addition to these benefits, the agreements will allow Clearwire to continue with its plan for an LTE advanced-ready overlay network.

As the result of an agreement between the RIAA, MPAA and all of the best internet providers across the nation, those who download and share copyrighted material will be watched and their IP addresses kept for future investigations. The entire process involves 6 steps which begin with notifying the offender and then slowing down their internet speed if illegal activities continue. But while this same process is being followed in France by a central organization that’s solely in charge of infringement, the offending IP addresses in the United States will be monitored and stored by individual ISPs. An independent technical review will then take place to take a closer look at evidence gathering techniques to ensure that legitimate data has been collected. Depending on each internet provider’s policy, an offender’s warnings from an ISP and accompanying copyright alerts may be disposed of following one year free of copyright warnings.
