Copyright claim from Comcast?

Post by Zanx on Sun 19 Mar 2017, 16:29

Hello, I recently installed the sims 4 off of your website and I uninstalled it because it got boring. A few days later (today) I got an email saying that Comcast (my internet company) had a copyright claim or something. It has a case number and everything. I'm concerned about the legal problems, because I have torrented countless things, but this has never happened to me before. I would like some help or information telling me if I f***ed up or not.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the Forum @Zanx,

Those messages are almost always "automatized". I'm not sure how often it happens that internet subscriptions are terminated and/or how often actual legal problems are (I don't suppose very often). For now I'd suggest you refrain from torrenting stuff, and for the future you could maybe consider using a VPN, though they tend to cost money. See for example Dracos' suggestion here.

We also have a general discussion thread here, if you like feel free to share your experiences there as well:
