Copyright Infringement

Post by sondor on Sat 23 Apr 2016, 18:30

Hello! I just downloaded the Sims 4 and got an email from my internet provider saying I'd committed a copyright infringement. I don't know what the best course of action to take is. Are there trackers in the downloads? Can I still open and run the file or will that get me into trouble? 
Thanks!!

Hello again,

Yes, you can install the game. But for the future, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to torrent more stuff from your regular internet connection. There are VPN services which support P2P-networking (i.e. torrenting) and which don't give out logs. You should look for services that specifically offer these 2 things. I myself cannot recommend anything specific since I haven't used a VPN myself yet.

Keep in mind that for these services you need to pay money, so this is not free.


Other than that, try doing some research, and see if you can switch your ISP to another one that is maybe more lenient toward torrenting stuff.
