The whole letter sounds like a bluff. Especially the whole off campus or on campus thing.

At any rate good thing I live in Canada where it is like impossible to get prosecuted.

If you are going to download torrents, do yourself a favour and use an ipfilter. The ipfilter blocks ip's that are known to be affiliated with the RIAA and other government organizations that are out to bust your ass. I know that it can be configured for utorrent but I believe it is possible to use on other torrent clients as well. Mind you, this does not guarantee your anonymity but is somewhat safer... so it's possible that you still can get busted.

Here's some info on it:

ipfilter

FYI, downloading copyrighted material is also illegal in Canada but it is illegal (invasion of privacy)for the ISP providers to give the RIAA or anyone your address so effectively they cannot bust you. I believe that this is true for Europe as well. You can; however, get a warning letter form your ISP and they have the right to cancel your account if you caught too many times.

two or so years ago my dad downloaded the Bewitched movie from emule, and the file was called bewitched.avi. turned out to be bogus file not playing anything. then i get letter from my provider (sympatico) that they had a complaint from some organization about that stupid movie, and gave me their email so i should straighten it out or else.
So basically that fuken file was a bait and they just went after all people who downloaded it... wasn't hard to explain myself though, i said that i was researching witchery and shit, never new it was a movie and file was ****ed up and i deleted it right away.
from now on i tend to download from known sources, from reputable releasers and never with straight names... so at least later you can say you didn't know or something

Downloading from torrent files always carries some risk - you can mitigate it by using filters like the one I provided the link to but it is still possible to be tracked.

With regard to your email from Sympatico, any anti-piracy or other organization like the RIAA has no way of obtaining your contact information from Sympatico as it is against Canadian law for Sympatico to provide it to any outside organization.

Don't be suckered in and reply to the email. It's a trap to get you to reply in order to get your address. Once they have your address the they have the option of prosecutng you under US law. I received an email about a year ago and immediately filed it under G in the round filing cabinet - never heard another word.

All Sympatico can do is suspend or cancel your account if you get caught again. Of course, this only applies in Canada - not in the USA. If you get caught there, you may face an extremely harsh fine or worse.

I download mine from youtube. I don't use any Limewire or Frostwire. I find it much more safe.
