Thread: Copyright

  1. #1
    I recieved an email from my ISP stating that they had recieved a complaint from Universal Studio's about copyright infringment from my IP address. They stated that I was in breech of my contract with them and enclosed the letter from universal.

    It basically had all the details of a movie I downloaded and when, my IP address and DNS name. It just said that they knew I was illegally sharing copyright movies and that although they have certain legal remidies available to them it beniefits everyone to settle this co-operativley - and they go on to say that they urge my internet provider to stop this infringment activity and to inform them of their action.

    Does anyone have any advise?

    I was using Bittorrent at the time. Should I stop using Bittorrent??

    The letter doesn't look that threatening - can they acually do anything if they catch me again, or should I say are they likely to do anything?

    Is my service provider aloud to give people like Universal any of my personal details??

    Sounds like entrapment.

    Doesn't that mean they're the ones putting the movie out on the internet? If so, you could argue that it was their own actions that caused you to download the file. If they didn't have it being broardcast across the world, you wouldn't have found it and downloaded it, right?

    Failing that, say it was a friend or a cousin or a little brother who downloaded it without your knowledge. You have warned them, and have deleted it from your computer.

    And no, I don't think they're allowed to get your details from your ISP.

    Exactly. The ISP have to pass the complaint on but in all probability they don't care. The chances on you getting caught once were pretty slim, so its pretty unlikely you'll get caught again.

    yeah you proablly will only get caught once, but now always run peerguardian or at leat put the baad ips into your firewall. Just to give you piece of mind
    Also be carefull because they may also be watching you evencloser now, just dont mess with universals stuff the industry eems to be picky on certain types of movies and that may have been one.


    Also it is my one year anniversary yeah
