RIAJ pushes for ISPs to spy on uploads

torrentfreak.com reports that:

The system works by spying on the connections of users and comparing data being uploaded to the Internet with digital fingerprints held in an external database… Once a match is found, rightholders want ISPs to automatically block the allegedly infringing content. But according to one report, there may even be requests to send out warning letters to uploaders. If implemented this would amount to the most invasive “3 strikes” style regime anywhere in the world.

So under this system Google Music users would be open for connection blocking despite using licensed content in an allowed way?   Not to mention Dropbox or Amazon Cloud users.    Sounds great for innovation.   Using a VPN would of course prevent this.
