Thread: Got Caught File Sharing on Utorrent

  1. #1
    I've been file sharing on utorrent for years now, and never had any problems. Then yesterday a friend of mine came over and downloaded a movie for his girlfriend (Black Swan) and then everyone in my house got emails from our ISP telling us to cease copyright infringement.

    I use utorrent to download TV shows because I don't have access to them any other way. My question is this: Now that I've received these letters, do I have to stop? Are they going to be watching me somehow, monitoring my IP address, or can I just steer clear of movie downloads from now on and be ok? I really want to be able to continue getting my favorite shows...

    That link is interesting but i'm not sure it answered my question.

    I'm asking specifically if my ISP (Time Warner) or the MPAA, or other anti-fileshare parties will be actively watching me from now on, now that I've received this warning letter, or if i'll be ok if I just stick to safe sites and small downloads.

    They won't be watching you any more than they "watch" the millions of Internet users from your country. Get a good IP filter, avoid public trackers and consider a Usenet or OCH subscription, both of which don't require you to upload.

    Ok, thanks. I'll do that. Can you recommend a good IP filter? I found this article that says it can be done in uTorrent, but is there a better option?

    First one below the folders should be the newest one. Updates are released semi-regularly.

    If you're only using uTorrent, then there's nothing better than its built-in IP filtering capabilities.
