The Motion Picture Association of America, Recording Industry Association of America, and five large US Internet providers have extended their Six Strikes anti-piracy system, according to a report by TorrentFreak.

The Six Strikes system sees Internet users warned if “their connections are used to download pirated content”. After six warnings, their connections are throttled or disconnected.

“The system has been in place for several years now and last summer the agreement was set to expire,” said TorrentFreak.

However, the programme will continue while the parties look to make it “future-proof”.
