looked through some of the posts on here re RIAA threatening people etc. Seen lists of IP's that you can download and block to try and stop music/film industry "watchdogs" from checking your files etc. How can these lists contain all IP's that these bodies use? How can anyone know of all the bodies that are checking our files? Once their IP has been found out can't they just change the IP they're using?!?!!??? Their's quite a few of them out their!
Just getting a little worried as Mediaforce contacted my ISP giving them my IP address, Kazaa user name etc and name of one of the films that I was sharing and have basically said...
1) Disable access to the individual who has engaged in the conduct described above; and
>2) Take appropriate action against the account holder under your Abuse Policy/Terms of Service Agreement.
So of course my ISP has then emailed me and threatened to shut down my account due to the terms and conditions of their Acceptable Use Policy!! :-(
Anyone got any helpful advice? A lot of the US companies cannot take action directly against people not in their country (so that's me covered their)... but the ISP's can shut accounts down and possibly take further action against us... this I do not want!
Of course I know I could stop using Kazaa... but this I would prefer not to do!!!!!!
Any advice etc would be good.
