Cox Cable and Torrents...anyone else been caught?


What is their policy with getting busted on using torrents? Is it three strikes before you are out? Also....could I just say a neighbor was using my IP address to download torrents and I had no idea? I would appreciate any info! I just got this email from them:

quote:


Dear Customer,

This message is to advise that Cox Communications has received a notice claiming that you are using your Cox High Speed Internet service to post or transmit material in violation of U.S. Copyright law. We have included a copy of the complaint, which identifies the party raising it and the material claimed to be infringing.

We ask that you review the complaint and, if it is valid, promptly remove or disable access to the infringing material. If you disagree with the claims in the notice, you should contact the sender, and not Cox, to resolve the matter.

As an Internet Service Provider, Cox is responsible, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), to advise when we receive a notice asserting infringement by you. We are also required to take appropriate action if further claims are received that you do not resolve.
The material that you post or share online is your responsibility. Cox encourages responsible Internet use, but we do not monitor nor control the information you share. We have a duty, however, to take progressive steps when we received complaints of infringement.

If we continue to receive infringement claims such as this one, concerning your use of our service, we will suspend your account and disable your Internet connection until you confirm you have removed the infringing material.

Basically, they will cut your shite off, if you do not stop.

Which would include putting security on an unsecure wireless network. Claiming ignorance will not prevent them from turning your shite off, if you continue to receive complaints.

I have a friend who has been busted no less than a dozen times this year and he still have internet. I use private sites like demonoid and iptorrents and I've never been busted and he says since he's started using demoniod he hasn't gotten caught again.

Ok...I do use PirateBay 90% of the time. What is Peer Guardian and how do I get an invite or join Demonoid?

Also, what are newsgroups, how do they work, and which should I use?

Thanks guys!

just google peer guardian. it's free.

demonoid invites are very easy to come by. just ask around. Every swinging dick i know uses that tracker. it's hit or miss though as far as what you get. there is a lot of crap on there, just like pirate bay

Won't fix his problem.

Better solution is to rent a seedbox. Google seedbox and find out how.

VPN also works.

Or private torrent sites. Demoniod is probably no better than pirate bay. Go with what/waffles for music, and for movies maybe iptorrents
