Graduated response (also known as three strikes) is a process that copyright owners have negotiated with ISPs, sometimes with legislative backing, to involve ISPs in copyright enforcement. Typically ISPs are required to give two warnings to users whom the copyright owners allege are infringing copyright, then after a third alleged infringement to terminate or suspend the user’s Internet connection.
