    Post Comcast Copyright Infringment

    So seems to me that Im thinking about switching over to Comcast. But while I was browsing on Demoniod, I noticed some users got a letter "Copy Of infringment" from Comcast for downloading software/files. Is this something serious?

    If it's anything like the one in New Zealand, you could be getting a fine and your internet could be disconnected

    You'll only get those letters if you seed torrents. Friend of mine got one in the mail when he used to let all of his torrents seed, now I deletes them right when they finish downloading and set the upload of the torrents to 0 so they can't seed while downloading, and he hasn't heard back since.

    Yeah I use Utorrent as well. Guess all you have to do is turn seeding to 0. Does seeding affect download speed?

    It's just a scare tactic, they never actually do anything about it.

    Comcast doesn't own the copyright, they just send those letters because they got a complaint from a copyright holder. Comcast won't give them your info without a court order, which will cost them a shitload in attorney fees to get. (and when they do go through with that, they go after downloaders too, not only seeders.)
