    Anybody's ISP been giving them trouble?

    For the past few years or so I've been downloading copyright material through torrents and such without a problem. Recently though, I've been receiving notifications from my ISP (Comcast) about multiple copyright infringement acts from my IP. They said that if it happens again, they will suspend my internet usage. To avoid this I could easily just hop on my VPN, but it did shock me a little when I read the notice. Has this ever happened to any of you?

    tl;dr?
    My ISP is threatening to suspend my internet usage if I continue to download copyrighted material. Has this happened to you?

    'Merica, fuck yeah! Stuff like this is just going to keep happening more and more over time. That's why I want to get away from North America. One of my ideal places to live would be Sweden, awesome women and they protect their internet rights a lot.

    encrypt your torrent protocol traffic

    should be under options in your client

    Never had this problem with my ISP. But some other people in Aus claim they've been receiving emails about it.

    Never happened to me. 4 games most likely won't get their attention.

    I heard about people claiming this as well, maybe because it's extreme use of torrent websites and P2P applications. I prefer forums that use file hosting websites but it's rare for our ISPs do this.
