    I've never posted here, but I am a bit concerned about the following message I been recieving, it's from the Canadian Recording Indusrty Association.I am wondering what this means to me as a user. Please read and advise if any of you know what this about or how I can stop it. I'm in Canada by the way.


    It appears that you are offering copyrighted music to others from your
    computer. While we appreciate your love of music, please be aware that
    sharing copyrighted music on the Internet without permission from the
    copyright owner is illegal. Victims of this process are the artists,
    songwriters and musicians who create the music and the other talented
    individuals who are involved in bringing you the music.

    More than 40,000 Canadians work hard producing and supporting the music you
    appear to enjoy, including producers, engineers, retailers, music
    publishers, distributors, manufacturers, record companies, concert promoters
    and broadcasters.

    When you break the law, you risk legal penalties. There is a simple way to
    avoid that risk: Don't distribute music to others on a file-sharing system
    like this. For further information, please go to

    I would assume that it wasn't legit and was just a spam by some trying to scare people off. If however it came with genuine authentication (i.e as a letter from the offices of the CRAI and/or via email from the correct address and a IP that checked) then you should be more worried.

    Yet to be determined
    Seems like the CRIA will do this:
    CRIA takes action to secure evidence of infringement of copyright in sound recordings offered on the identified sites in Canada. Notification in writing is sent to the website operators, service providers or both, informing them of the infringing copies of sound recordings on the music files of the sites they host and the legal implications if they do not voluntarily cease and desist offering the infringing copies on these sites.
