    Hello everyone,
    i'm a new member here, i don't post much but i lurk in the background reading post frequently. I just want to share my bad experience about downloading copyrighted torrent games. I got a warning letter from comcast about the digital mellenium copyrighted act (DMCA) telling me that i downloaded/share a copyrighed software through their isp, and that they will shutdown my service if i continue to violate this rule. Look like i will not be downloading another illegal games again. I was'nt aware of this. When i read the messge it scare the daylight out of me.

    yea stopping would probably be the smartest thing to do, and yea that is the new way of combating pirating. Software companys have told isp's to monitor illegal software and if it is present then the isp will close your account. isp's accepted this b/c apparently ( i read it somewhere but i forget where so i might be wrong) sharing and downloading big files, kills their bandwith or sumthin. so yea good move with the stopping thing.

    Well, at least i can still dump games that i borrowed from friends and buddies. I can borrow their game to try out, or maybe rent some.
