    "we need your help to prevent this from happening again"

    well read the letter
    How hard would it be to prove it?
    Sharing means receiving and giving right, so would that make it equal responsibility for parties involved?

    All I see is a generic copyright notice which all ISPs have been giving out since bittorrent existed. Solution? Don't pirate, or if you do, use a VPN that allows P2P or just use private trackers.

    I'm not looking for a solution thank you, it's not my letter.
    It just seems very much like Civil matters and grey area, that could easily be got out of, or easily be prosecuted for, depending on what you say.
    I'm guessing it would be very hard to prove if you plead the fifth.

    I would just like to add its not unheard of innocent people being prosecuted. We all have a right of freedom and to do things which do not harm others in a malicious or threatening way.

    Use one of those pirate firewalls if your going to "share" lol

    Peerblock is the last one I remember using, it might still be good?

    It's not 100% and a VPN would be better but if you have no money Peerblock or something like it is free.

    Yes, sharing is illegal. In most places, when it comes to piracy, it's the sharing that's the larger offence.

    Downloading isn't always super serious, but uploading is. The uploader causes more damage than the downloader.

    Iceland is not a bad shout if only it wasn't so damn cold, but hang on the god of fire will be there so its cool. :toot: see what i did there.

    On a serious note Iceland is a cool country, they jailed all their dodgy wankers *cough cough* i Mean bankers, Icelanders are heroes.
    Oh but wait a few did escape and are now working within the UK financial services. No wonder its so shit here haha
