Comcast DMCA Notice

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I opened what I expected to be my monthly bill, albeit it was a bit early to have already received it, and to my surprise it was a DMCA Notice saying there was Copyright Infringement on my account's IP. I've done my fair share of illegal downloading/torrents but in the end I've always come to own said movie/game that I've downloaded so I wasn't too worried. I then unfold the last fold of the tri-fold letter, and it shows the file, IP, protocol used, and copyright owner. It just so happens it's a porno and while I've downloaded movies, I've never downloaded any porn. The letter says its against Comcast's terms of use and nothing about a legal issue so I'm assuming I'm ok for now but obviously since this was my roommate if anything were to happen I wouldn't want any fees/dings associated with my SSN/Account when it clearly wasn't me.


Has anyone encounter DMCA notices from Comcast before? Is it ok to just tell my roommate to stop downloading stupid stuff from now on and let it be?

Thanks, Nick

I've had Comast for years and never have even heard of such letter being sent out. I would say something to him asap! also might be on the safe side and call a local lawyer and get some advice.

I've received 2 of the notices over the last couple of years. I wouldn't worry too much about it, nothing ever came of mine. It's pretty much a warning saying you were caught, stop seeding.

Pretty much the reason I switched from torrents to usenet when I need to grab something. Wasn't worth the risk/bs.

Usually nothing will come out of this situation, but it can.
Here's the bad part - I seriously doubt you telling him will make him stop doing it. And since the account is in your name, you are responsible if anything happens. If you're truly afraid of this, the only thing you can do is switch the account to his name. But that will make things really awkward for you two.
Are you college roommates? If yes, wait until semester ends and address things then.

Not worth the trouble, tell you roomy to stop d/l the material, stream it like everyone else or buy it.
It is a very popular topic today so it is just not worth the risk on your wallet or your character.

Block the port he used on your router. It's the only way to stop it.

That is, unless you want to potentially lose thousands or tens of thousands in a law suit.

I had once sent to be Years ago. In my area Adelphia was the cable ISP and Comcast bought them out. I have yet received one since.

Although when i called and acted dumb, the woman i spoke to told me just stop sharing the content and we don't bother you.
