    use "peer guardian 2" next time....
    if u havent got a phonecall or letter in the mail ur fine...
    i wouldnt worry too much..
    all depends on where u live...

    i got a phone way back from my ISP and they said they were contacted by SONY blah blah blah and sony wanted to press charges and lay fines and my isp in a nice way told them to shove it up their ass cause they have no power in canada...
    then i use PG2, havent heard of anything more yet...

    Even if you are the most obvious person on the internet, the most you will get is an email from your ISP telling you to delete the infringing material or they will be forced to disable your connection. Then you reply saying you are sorry and the material has been deleted, and it all goes away.

    You really should use protection when downloading, though ... don't want to get it pregnant.

    Yeah .... tell him to use peer guardian if he is torrenting ..... If he is using R0gers Internet in canada they might remove his internet service ..... They like to send scary letters to people ( My friend got a letter just the other day for the same thing telling him if he continues they will remove his internet service )
    Switching ISP provider is what i would do ;)
