What Should I Do?


Rajesh

Recommended Posts

Hi,

During my trip to US, I downloaded a Movie Via Torrent. That has been about a month ago. Now my friend there (I've been using his BroadBand connection) said that he got some notice from ComCast. I don't have the full details or wordings of the mail.. But I feel bad about it. What should I do ? Or Ask him to do?

Thanks

Raj

The exact e-mail would be necessary for us to determine any further course of action (without the e-mail all we could do is guess...).

any copyright notice from his or her ISP YOU NEED TO IGNORE IT AND DO NOT RESPOND! BECAUSE IF YOU RESPOND TO THE LETTER ITS ONLY RATTING HIMSELF OUT. otherwise if its a copyright warning do not respond to it if it says you breached copyright blah blah blah and so on :P

He could well drop Comcast anyway, if there's an alternative, they're known for throttling and sending notices = P2P unfriendly :(

This has happen to me a twice.

What happens is, I downloaded some stuff from piratebay and decided to comment on the torrent. Well, people watching saw I downloaded and with post, it was a confirmation of my download because I admitted to downloading it. (never comment on torrents)

Anyway, my ISP emailed me and said, you have been reported for downloading pirate software, violating copyright etc. If you do not own the rights to these, you must stop sharing, delete it and remove the program from your computer.

I emailed them back and I told them that I deleted the torrent info, files etc and removed the program from my computer. They thanked me and I was ok. Just email them if for some reason you can't find the original email from them and either ask them what is going on or tell them that you received an email about downloading pirated software and that you have removed the torrent and any trace of if from your computer. They should get back to you either way. I did not really remove the program from computer BTW hahahahaha I just told them what they wanted to hear. I did however remove the torrent from my client so that I was not sharing it with anyone. Hope this makes sense. ISP's will give you several warnings before cutting off your internet and if they do, you have to call them back and solve the issue and they will re-connect your cable service/internet connection. I got mine cut off because I was SEEDING night and day and they said give us more money or stop seeding, which is like an upload cap. I still use torrents and I still seed, I just don't seed night and day. lol

That doesn't really seem like a smart thing you do. You admitted to having downloaded the file yourself...

I would recommend ignoring it for now, but if you show us the contents there might be a better course of action.

lol makes no sense to argue with the people at my ISP when they know for a fact that I did download the file/s in question. Lying to them about it would be insulating their intelligence. They already told me it was ok to use torrent client but that I could not seed like crazy because it cost them money. No need to make a court battle over this. because win or lose, it would be a huge waste of time.

I see, well that's obviously the content which allowed you to reply to that. By the way they do not know you downloaded it, they know that it was downloaded/seeded from your IP.

As I mentioned earlier if the content of the e-mail allows it you might want to reply.
