Has anyone gotten a notice(DMCA) like this from Charter?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
I got a notice today that I "supposedly" downloaded House seasons 1 and 2. I call shananagins because i _OWN_ both season 1 and 2. They said I was using BitTorrent (which is also BS, I dont even use BitTorrent, although I do think that we have a legal right to which is beside the point). What the crap do I do to fight this? I've never gotten a notice like this before, and I plan on fighting it tooth and nail... but seriously, has anyone ever gotten this before?

careful on the verbage, but yes, we all have...lol. Not respectively from Charter, but from Comcast, Frontier, and ATT... Surewest is the only one that seems to have nixed this issue. Good Luck with all that.

EDIT: to add, there is nothing really to fight. Explain in an email that you have an over the air broadcast (wifi) that is not completely secure (which you are not legally bound to secure) and that it is out of your hands. They usually stop sending them.

If you are going to pirate something, at least make it something worth pirating.

haha

In all seriousness, just forget about it. If you do not pirate things like you claim, than you will have nothing to worry about.

I had recieved a notice for downloading Hot Fuzz, I had lent it to a friend to watch so I figured since I owned the movie there wouldn't be a big deal about downloading it to watch again. Wrong answer.... But I was kind enough to send them a copy of my receipt that was dated weeks before the infraction date, never heard anything about it again.

So who sends these notices? I've never got any kind of notice before and I certainly do my share of "file-sharing". I don't see how the hell they can do anything about you downloading something anyway. I mean if they're not taking the pirated movies down off these torrent sites then how do they have any right to tell you you can't download them. Its my personal opinion that the only people who are truly at fault and should even be prosecuted at all are the people who do the ripping/uploading not the people downloading it. Thats basically the same thing as a thief stealing a stereo and giving it to someone else. You should arrest the thief not the guy he gave the **** to.
