We've been covering the new Copyright Alert System that a group of major Internet companies launched this week to patrol for customers doing illegal downloads. The system will generate an escalating series of warnings. In theory, six strikes and a movie, music or software pirate is out. But what exactly happens on strike six? Harvard Law professor Jonathan Zittrain talks about how you might actually need to go to pirating re-education camp.
