Thread: Caught p2p?

  1. #1
    ok so i just recently got an email from my isp:

    Dear ------------

    We are writing as a courtesy to let you know that we have received a
    notification from one or more owners of music/movie/other creative rights
    claiming that their work has been transmitted over the Internet from your
    account without their permission (please see enclosed notice(s)). Our
    records indicate that we have notified you in the past about similar
    complaints. We are concerned that either you or a person with access to
    your account may be participating in certain file sharing or
    server-related activities that led to this complaint.

    As we indicated in our first letter, the Optimum Online User Agreement
    that you agreed to at the time of your subscription requires compliance
    with all applicable laws and specifically prohibits the use of the Optimum
    Online system for copyright infringement.

    We consider you a valued customer, so we wanted to remind you that if the
    copyright holder pursues this claim, or if there are additional claims, it
    could lead to legal action against you. We may be required by law to
    release private information about you and to suspend, or even terminate,
    your service. We want to help you prevent this from happening.

    In order to assist you in your future use of our service, we have again
    included with this letter a series of tips and guidelines that we hope
    will give you all the information you need to avoid further action on this
    matter or on other matters. We also have provided the following link
    containing information for addressing this issue
    www.optonline.net/copyright

    We regret having to send notices like this, and we do not wish to alarm
    you unnecessarily, but we have a responsibility to advise you of any
    notices concerning your account.

    If you have any questions about our Optimum Online policies, please feel
    free to contact us at the Customer Service Center, 631-846-5350. We
    appreciate your business, and look forward to providing you with
    excellence in broadband service for many years to come.

    If you're downloading from public sites use a proxy, lol. If you don't want to change isps, then tell your isp to cancel your current account and start up again with a new addy.

    You can't change the past, and if need be you're gonna have to live up to the consequences.

    Torrents are very possible the easiest way to get caught trading files. I would try other means.

    i'm using bit torrent no private tracker
    The email specifically said it was because i was dling balls of fury. i really think it was just that torrent, i thought something was sketchy because it was an early release compared to like Axxo or fxg. i donno man, maybe i should just stop for a while.
    any ideas?

    Use private trackers or something like PeerGuardian2 if you have to use public ones...

    I definitely wouldn't go downloading with your current ISP account. They've given you the chance to stop with their warning...

    If I were you I would get another ISP account. Consider using a seedbox to DL...
