My friend had was threatened by Sony Pictures
    #4408584 - 07/15/05 06:35 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys:

A buddy of mine received a phone call today from his cable internet provider and they claimed that he was downloading a sony film, and that this was his first warning. If he does it again they will cancel his service, and he will be sued by Sony Pictures.

Is there any way I can help him by means of a proxy? What's the best way to fully secure the computer. Obviosuly he shouldn't be downloading torrent files, but I can't stop him. Any ideas?

don't download movies that are really 'hot' right now.

or don't download them in the US.

other than that - find a trusty ISP that won't divulge who each IP address belongs to?

Definately his best option. Some ISP's won't give up their customers information easily at all.

"I have a wireless router, someone must be using my connection!"  I wonder if that'd work :shrug:

Maybe try and talk him into getting a dvd copy program, and then join netflix, or blockbuster, and just copy the movies= better quality,
and no worry about spyware, virus,s, or little things companys are seeding the files with. these two are not for free like dvd shrink, but they make great copies. www.slysoft.com

yup. exactly - the mpaa only really tracks those who are uploading in-theatre movies or just relased-to-dvd movies - basically movies that they are making money off of at the moment. Avoid these.

Find private, invite-only trackers and avoid the big public trackers.

do the netflix thing & just copy the dvds with dvdshrink.

Other than that, there is not much you can do. IP range blocking is an option but it is not 100% secure.
