Your ISP sends you an email or letter usually about 3 times to tel you to stop

In all honesty the ISP doesn't care what you download, you're paying for their service, it's the fact that they are getting pressured from companies trying to protect the copyright laws.


some of this is true. BUT, some people are actually suing people who download torrents. They are getting people's information and then suiting them in large numbers.

Usenet is definitely the place to go if you want to get your content quick. Sunday night TV shows are up after 2 hours they are shown. Always max out your speed, don't have to rely on seeders.

The best part is your ISP has no clue what you're downloading.

As long as you have a VPN, which a lot of Usenet services offer, they can't see what you're downloading.

Does whoever provides the VPN have access to the information?

The issue shouldn't be whether or not your ISP finds out...it should be whether or not I get sued and have to settle or hire counsel. Either course of action is going to cost several thousand dollars.

for those of you using usenet and for those of us ignorant to usenet, tell us a little more.

like one would where would one interested in such a thing go to register? how much does it cost? what type of things will be able to find there? would i be able to find british comedy shows on there? how does it work in general? do i have to wait on seeders to download stuff?

thank you greatly in advance.

Read up on how usenet works, they cannot see what I'm downloading, for all they know I'm a video editor and need to download 10-20gb files. If you cannot prove I'm downloading movies, you cannot pull my service.

They can't get my info from any sources, I'm on a VPN with SSL, good luck.

Copyright rulings like this are a great example of how big business uses the government to keep itself fat and rich. If music/movies wasn't able to be copyrighted, these movie and record studios would be seeing much skinnier checks by now, if not being altogether rendered obsolete in the new world of file sharing. But nope, go to the government, have them expand copyright legislation... and now you can sue your competitors, arrest their consumers, and hold back an entire industry from evolving and improving with modern technology. Sad.

This won't completely stop pirating. Never under estimate young people. Kids are too smart. They will always circumvent security. It will scare enough people away from torrent sites. It's not going to stop modders from downloading Halo 4 a month early.
