  • Busted for peer-to-peer file sharing..

    I googled this and HBO has been sending several of these emails around for their shows..

    Dear Customer,

    We are writing on behalf of Cox Communications to advise you that we have received a notification that you are using your Cox High Speed Internet service to post or transmit material that infringes the copyrights of a complainant's members. We have included a copy of the complaint letter. Pursuant to the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), which is codified at 17 U.S.C. § 512, upon receiving such notification, Cox is required to "act expeditiously to remove, or disable access to" the infringing material in order to avoid liability for any alleged copyright infringement. Accordingly, Cox will suspend your account and disable your connection to the Internet within 24 hours of your receipt of this email if the offending material is not removed.

    Please be aware that the DMCA also provides procedures by which a subscriber accused of copyright violation can respond to the allegations of infringement and, under certain circumstances, cause his or her account to be reinstated. To do so, however, the response must meet certain criteria. Pursuant to section (g) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. § 512(g)), you have the right to submit to Cox a counter-notification which, to be effective, must include the following elements:

    (a) a physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
    (B) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
    © a statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
    (d) the subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located.

    In the event that you submit to Cox a counter-notification that includes these elements, Cox will forward your counter notification to the complainant and advise them that Cox will cease disabling access to the allegedly infringing material in ten (10) business days. Unless the complainant notifies us that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity prior to the expiration of those ten (10) business days, Cox will reactivate your account.

    For answers to frequently asked questions, please follow the link below:

    Cox Customer Security

    Reb,

    Did you get one of those emails?
    And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

            W/ the new TV season coming up, the way that networks respond to what amounts to free, OTA, shows will be very interesting.

            Personally, last season I obtained many shows via torrent in their HDTV format that were, indeed, free OTA shows.

            I think I am safe in that regard, though no one knows for sure, I suppose.
            When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                Nothing. I had to delete the file.

                I wasn't about to file a counter-claim, turning over my name, address, telephone and federal jurisdiction.

                I would imagine I'm more likely to be sued if HBO decides to go that route, however.

                  I think they are fucking stupid.

                  Take Prison Break for instance, had I not downloaded the torrent and watched it I wouldn't now be hooked and going to watch it every Monday.

                  These people shoot themselves in the foot every time they get close to a gun.



                  And they are not smart enought to charge 5 bucks per download on their own servers. Or something anyway.

                      He isn't crying, he is providing the service of letting others know it happened.
