This won't be the government spying on you it will be your own internet service provider. It's called the "six strike plan", http://www.pcworld.com/article/235253/copyright_cops_team_with_isps_to_crack_down_on_music_movie_pirates.html?tk=rel_news http://www.pcworld.com/article/235261/isps_fight_piracy_meet_the_six_strikes.html Your bandwidth will be reduced to a crawl if you are found in repeated violation of sharing or downloading "copyright" material. What defines copyright material? That's the problem even if you download a video about symbolism in a song/movie or a clip from a news channel that should fall under the "fair use act" you can still find yourself in hot water over it. But to be fair you have the right to argue your case at the cost of $35 for each offense (non refundable). Still not satisfied with the outcome, than you have the right to get a lawyer and go to court over it. Basically you are now guilty until you prove your innocents and the cost of it is on you.
