Copyright Infringement

Post by DreamerJT on Wed 05 Oct 2011, 10:22

I recently received an email from my internet provider stating that I've downloaded copyrighted material. Mainly regarding The Sims 3: Town Life. I've also downloaded a few other Sims 3 games from your site. You stated on your site that you didn't carry copyrighted material. I'm just sharing my concern with this.

Hello,
That's right, G4TW doesn't carry any copyrighted material. You only download a torrent file from the site, which is perfectly legal. When you load a torrent file into a torrent client, you start downloading the actual file. That is copyrighted material.
I'm not sure what you can do to prevent your provider from finding this out in the future.

Hello,

Indeed, that sucks. The warning is there to note people that we do not host the copyrighted materials. When you download something from our website, you're redirected to The Pirate Bay's servers. That means that when TPB is offline, you can't download anything from our website either.
Anyhow, its still a warning from your ISP. What I recommend you to do is telling them that you use Tor! (If you don't know what it is, please read its website for more information about the program itself) and that probably someone who was using your connection via Tor! downloaded stuff like that. I highly recommend you read/send them this sample letter: https://www.torproject.org/eff/tor-dmca-response.html.en (Read through it all!)

Hope this helps. Please let us know any changes in the process!
