    Don't listen to these jokers. Most likely nothing will happen, but don't let it happen too much, else your internet might be shut off

    Awww you ruined the fun. It's best to never torrent ANYTHING again, they are probably watching you now. The letter was most likely a word of warning. But repeated use of torrenting will most likely have the feds coming to your door.

    the company will try to get ahold of the customer (in this case your dad) and tell him. Now there will be charges pressed and legal action taken so i suggest you move somewhere or get some lawyers so they wont sue you for a LARGE AMOUNT of money. Last time ive head one guy had to pay alteast $75,000. so yeah.

    idk who uses torrents these days. it used to be safer back then, i myself have stopped cuz of what has happened with laws and such. now i just use hosting stes and pay for membership, less dangerous, but still.

    Don't worry about it, I've gotten about 3. Use an ipfilter and it should prevent it from happening. Most of the time they send them out for big screeners, but it doesn't matter because they are worthless. There's been about 5 lawsuits, but all it got was bad press for the isp's and a fun pro bono for a lawyer.

    But I don't really care, you seem like an idiot so do what you want.

    If your gonna use torrents then at least use a private site and not a public one.

    Or look into getting your games from free upload services like rapidshare megaupload ext.. and just use a download manager app to download all the files for you.

    private sites don't always cost money you just need to find someone that has an invite they can give or wait until the site has open registration.


    Getting the games from sites like megaupload,rapidshare ext.. are also free you just need to find the sites that post the links.
