Timewarner or not, no one's safe. If this goes through it will create a precedent to be used for any cases in the future, regardless of ISP.

That won't be enough, they can still get the data off them.

Edit: and in the case of someone piggy backing on your wireless, we *the ISP's* do not care, secure your wireless internet, you are legally responsible for everything downloaded on your wireless internet, even if your grandpa downloads child porn

Whats so good about uTorrent? Does it do something that other file sharing clients dont? Sorry I'm a noob when it comes to these things.

Im going to get to work on a fail safe system that either involves water, or a small explosive charge now, because no-one can get their hands on my HD.

God, I hate this so much.

Its nonsense, encryption makes p2p data/header look like normal http data so that its harder to limit p2p speeds, it does not protect you.

Peerblock is a noble cause, but I doubt its effectiveness. Its impossible block all the ip's used by the protection companies. You can't 'spoof' your ip in utorrent, the only reliable way to hide your IP is VPN, other methods are to slow to bittorrenting. Like I said above, encryption does nothing to protect you.

TL;DR

Move away from torrents already.

The only sure fire way to make a HD incapable of letting them get the data is to physically break the disks inside into as many pieces as possible, if it's an SSD the same goes.

Just remember, heat and water do nothing, they DID retrieve the hard drives from the space shuttle Columbia when it exploded in 2003 and those hard drives were mostly melted on the outside, but the disks inside were fine.

Jon Edwards often manages what appears impossible. He has recovered precious data from computers wrecked in floods and fires and dumped in lakes.

Now Edwards may have set a new standard: He found information on a melted disk drive that fell from the sky when space shuttle Columbia disintegrated in 2003.

"When we got it, it was two hunks of metal stuck together. We couldn't even tell it was a hard drive. It was burned and the edges were melted," said Edwards, an engineer at Kroll Ontrack Inc., outside Minneapolis. "It looked pretty bad at first glance, but we always give it a shot."

During Columbia's fateful mission, the drive had been used to store data from a scientific experiment on the properties of liquid xenon.

Most of the information was radioed to Earth during Columbia's voyage. Edwards was able to recover the remainder, allowing researchers to publish the experiment in the April issue of a science journal, Physical Review E.
They had to enter the atomsphere from space to lose the magnetic charge.

Hmm, I would think they would go after the uploaders, not the downloaders.

Its the people that don't know anything about downloading stuff that should be worried. Newsgroups have 256bit encryption, for $6 a month you get unlimited speeds and access to news...and other fun stuff.

Your ISP has records of literally everything you do, hence torrents being the most dangerous form of piracy.
