    It has come to our attention that bt-adsl is the service provider for

    engaging in this infringement is provided by bt-adsl or a downstream
    service provider who purchases this connectivity from bt-adsl.

    This unauthorized copying and distribution constitutes copyright
    infringement under applicable national laws and international treaties.
    Although various legal and equitable remedies may be available to
    Universal as a result of such infringement, Universal believes that the
    entire Internet community benefits when these matters are resolved
    cooperatively. We urge you to take immediate action to stop this
    infringing activity and inform us of the results of your actions. We
    appreciate your efforts toward this common goal.

    Are you using PeerGuardian? It blocks A LOT of studio scumbag traffic.

    The email seems no joke, although &#39;monitoring&#39; BitTorrent is trivial to do.

    Strangely, no company is mentioned as doing the actual anti-piracy monitoring -- so there&#39;s no leads on additional blocking schemes.

    "Internet Anti-Piracy Team, Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations" just isn&#39;t much to go on. It makes them sound bigger and more powerful than they probably really are.

    However, that is probably VIVENDI UNIVERSAL ENTERTAINMENT/Universal City Studios Productions LLLP/Universal&#39;s intentions -- to prevent anti-piracy method researchers from blocking their unwanted intrusions.

    All things considering, it seems rather UNLIKELY that the email is a hoax.
    BUT... I wouldn&#39;t reply to it in any case.

    Look... The email included what it claimed was your ip address... [IP Removed] if that&#39;s your address then it might be credible, if not, then it&#39;s just some random scare spam. I would look up the fake sounding name on the net and see what you can find.
