The alert said that the file "the sims 2" is protected by copyright.
The file is hosted on the server and accessible at 22.214.171.124
free download via BitTorrent. The contract is not respected.
Until now, we would warn the customer, then pre-closed the server,
then the process would repeat itself while the contract remains broken or the server is
closed. No customer has changed behaviour on all alerts
between January and July (about 3-6 alerts per day). All servers
were finally closed.
Since 1 week, we switched to another method. Now on the farm
server is closed immediately as soon as the contract is broken. Sums
paid are not reimbursed. There was no discussion possible.
If a problem occurs, the legal option is available to the customer.
The result is the same except that our admins work less and the network
is less attractive for this type of illegal activity. Our network has no
vocation to become the wastebasket of the internet where you can find any
divx, exe or mp3 in a few minutes.
Finally, we continue with this method. In the long term, 1-3 months,
95% of this activity will go elswhere.
