Long story short, the he stopped doing what he did since he didn't know what he was doing.
And nothing else happened.
Funny thing is, the movie he downloaded didn't even work lol
It is actually pretty common for companies to put out fake torrents for illegal material, then monitor you uploading them. That way, they don't lose anything and could possibly sue you. Chances are they won't though. I got a letter about a year ago. Generally I have found that the only such letters I have heard about are for items like movies still in theaters, tv shows still airing, and music that hasn't been released. If there is a commercial dvd available for something, the heat is turned way down on it.
