    I live in Canada so I dont have to worry about any of that! Since its illegal for any of our isp's to give any info about us unless they have a warrent Most of the time those notices are just sent to you because "HBO" in this example sent your isp a notice and your isp is passing it on to cover there ass... I'm sure you have nothing to worry about

    You don't get sued for downloading.
    You get sued for distribution of copywrited material, sharing.

    Post a copy of the infrigment letter here since most of the time it tells you what tracker you were using to grab the file when they caught you and give everyone a heads up.

    i got that letter twice from HBO, once last year for Rome, once this year for entourage. Both times I d/led from either isohunt or torrentspy or mininova. Nothing ever came of it. I was even using peerguardian this latest time. Stick to the private trackers and you'll be fine. Though torrenting makes me nervous becuase once you're in the swarm, you can see all the ip addresses of everyone d/ling and u/ling.

    .....you're playing with words: downloading copyrighted material will get ya sued....downloading a picture of your cat will not....most readers of this post know what is meant

    got them from a public tracker(mininova).....my understanding is that any public tracker is fair game for the RIAA and MPAA's web crawler which checks for copyrighted material automatically and then records downloaders and uploaders ip addresses
