    I got this today:

    Over,

    We got the same letter from Cox Communications from when we downloaded a movie or song.....can't remember.

    Hubby sent a letter of apology claiming dumbness and nothing more was heard. Of course, you do have to stop downloading:peaceful:.

    Ha! I don't know. I did notice Limewire was on this computer, but me and wifey never used it. I think it's from before the kids got laptops.
    Anyhow, I removed it.

    Daughter says it wasn't her. The email gives you the exact time it happened (allegedly). Yesterday at 3:32 PM.

    I guess all computers at the same house use the same ip???

    From how I understand it, they catch you if you upload, not if you are just downloading.

    When using file sharing programs, your preferences have to be set so you do not share. Ironic, huh?

    Ofcourse, I am not encouraging bad behavior.

    There is also the case in Minnesota where the single young mom was found guilty (twice- counting the appeal) and was fined over a million bucks. She could have settled for $5,000 but some fancy lawyer convinced her she should fight it. Who knows how that one is going to end up. Personally I think she is headed for the electric chair
