    NO . In my country is no rule for copyright. using secure not available anytime. and tracking by DNS requests and IP destinations is very easy for providers

        Never. In my country filesharing is illegal but it's never implemented.

            I also never got a warning, but I'm afraid it won't be so easy in the future. Friend is tehnical director by one of our ISP and he told me some goverment agency already got hardware for real-time analysing traffic. And I'm from a small country in Europe.

              I also have never received one but I am fairly new to torrents. I have a hard time sorting out what is scare tactics and what can really be used in a court of law (in the US)

                Nope I find that if I reduce my speeds to something more natural like 500-700 kb a second instead of the 2MB each torrent can handle everything works fine. When I have high download and upload speeds my connection instantly gets dropped down a lot. Personally you shouldnt download everyday if you live in America, ill download like 10GB all at once, seed for a couple days and wait a month before I download anything again. The wife is constantly streaming tv shows but that hasn't effected us.

                    My housemate and I got one once for downloading "The hurt locker" which was a little scary since apparently that studio went on a massive lawsuit campaign against bittorent users. Fortunately it was just a warning and that was it.

                      Once, which is funny. The house I was living in about a year ago, I got a letter from Comcast telling me that I was infringing because I had downloaded South Park... never downloaded South Park. Never received anymore after that.

                        My Stupid Government blocks many website such as TPB putlocker. I can just easily access it by changing my DNS server. My ISP does not even warn any user for download pirated stuff. Instead another ISP(I am not using it) will automatically disconnect user's internet if they found out you have Torrent client installed such as UTorrent.

                          Wouldnt they state the rules in the contract with ISP?
                          in asian country like mine, the government doesnt care much about piracy. They however, block social websites including Facebook to prevent contact with rebel oversea

                            Yes, about 10 years ago. Cant remember if it was torrents or DC++, but anyway. I got letter from ISP stating that I had done something illegal and I should stop that ASAP. Letter included a huge list possible illegal actions I might had done (including child pornography!) to deserve that warning.

                            Oh, TPB is blocked by most ISPs here in Finland as well.... though all sister sites works well.

                              Yes - once. It was quite funny, actually. I got an email stating that I had infringed upon Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol 2011 DVDSCR AC3 XViD - INSPiRAL. As soon as I saw this I started laughing, because I am the type of guy that only downloads the highest quality blu-ray rips, so I immediately knew that it wasn't from me. What made it even more comical was the fact that I had like 6 TB or so (I've got almost double that now) worth of stuff at the time and that my torrent related traffic is roughly (up and down) 3.2 TB per month. I sent them a very angry email back saying that they were wrong. They apologized, I continued to torrent, and that was the end of it
