These companies would have came up with it anyway and instead of it being to deter pirates it would be to protect their product or something silly like that. Piracy isn't as rampant as everyone seems to believe.

Piracy is pretty rampant. I don't know many gamers that don't pirate games once in a while, but rarely do they pirate games that are new; generally people pirate games that are old enough that they would have fallen into the 10-20 dollar range anyway. It's pretty common, but it really doesn't affect the industry significantly.

All I had to do was ask them if they new I was pirating or just guessing. there is nothing wrong with using torrent's, its perfectly legal. In my case they couldn't prove what I was downloading only that I was using torrent's.
Ohh how I cannot wait for google fiber!

I also have TWC, but they have never throttled me down. But I also get my service through them since my wife is an employee, so hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

They don't throttle bad, but I hardly ever see my advertised connection speeds, ever, when using Deluge that is. My upload is about 1/3 what I pay for, my download hover's at less than half what I pay for.

However if I run a speed test while downloading and uploading, and add my speed test results to my current download and upload speeds it ='s my full connection speed(advertised speeds*).

The conclusion is they are throttling my Deluge based downloads, other downloads are very speedy and often times have short burt's well above what I am paying for. Outside of my personal hatred for TWC I cannot moan too much about it.

If anything, though, that shows that pirates will still pay for movies if they think they will be good. I'm not paying for any more god damn 3D, though; it's just painful.

I just thought it was nicely done. Besides the story of course.
I do go to the cinema often and rent movies, but since I'm a huge movie fan it ends up being quite expensive. I mix everything up, cinema, renting, stream, download. I think most people with fast internet connection do that.

They will put the torrent sites on a blacklist that will notify them if you access the webpage. Of course there are ways around it. Cheers mate let me know if you want anything or need anything. I have some great ideas!
