yeah a friend had the cable company here call him the day after d/ling a new-ish movie and made him delete it while on the phone with them. then said not to do it again or else. seems companys are putting out files that send your ip after you download them then scare you from doing it again. not a bad idea, guess they're starting to take a proactive approach.

Ya know, I would be tempted to push the limits on this one - if it were me.....  Since you OWN the fuggin movie, and can proove it should it come to that point, I would start downloading that movie EVERY FUGGIN DAY until they took action - more than likely call their bluff....    It was NEVER asked in their e-mail weather or not you owned the movie....  And if they were to take action before actually finding out the facts and asking you the right questions, I would think that they would be liable for a law suit....  I don't know the law, and don't know what would come out of this, but I am a stubborn SOB that would push it...!   

:lol:    Fugg em'....!

Bait - trap - and scare....?

Having a back-up copy is legal.... I would have told the person that caleld that guy to go smoke a pole - with a prompt hang-up.... After I asked how the hell they got my number - with the threat of harassment if they called back....

yeah i always thought about what you said blink. i always thought if i got busted i would go buy the cd/dvd and when they took me to court i would show proof of purchase to view that movie/song. i always thought that would work.

If you have wireless broadband you get dynamic IP's, so your IP doesnt stay the same. I wonder if they can track you down.

Did they use the PGP encryption or just the PGP signing feature?

In Canada it is perfectly LEGAL to make or obtain "backup" copies of movies, music, or software which you own. Which is why most (all?) of the lawsuits have all been down south of the border.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
