NonprayingMantis:
PaulBrislen: And yes, definitely a US letter sent under US law. The NZ law will require the rights holder to identify a number of different aspects including time/date of download etc as well as IP address and file details.

Huh? did you reads the email? it does exactly that

That bit is irrelevant as that is in the email from worldnet. But they do list the correct info in the original email sent to Jay Lee:

Copyright owners may apply to the Tribunal for a compensation or make application to a District Court for an
order requiring the ISP to suspend the account holders Internet access.

Only if an order in council has been passed that I am not aware of.

I think someone noted above that the letter is based on US law. Appears they didnt bother to check what country the dirty rotten infringer was in!

1) Remove or disable access to the individual who has engaged in the conduct described above; and


2) Take appropriate action against the account holder under your Abuse Policy/Terms of Service Agreement.

Wow - talk about going for the jugular!!

I did laugh however at the next paragraph;
We also would request that you inform the individual who engaged in this conduct that legitimate copies of CBS content are widely available for viewing online, for example on www.cbs.com and many other sites that participate in the CBS Audience Network.

So apart from the obvious that was mentioned earlier (content is not widely available) - please make up your mind.  Either ask for the user to be cut off, or suggest that they go to www.cbs.com to watch the content legally! 

At least now it is known what to expect!

wreck90: So, are you guilty?

 


Yep, I admit guilt. I'm a sole occupant.

I actually dont have too many problems with WorldNet, I know some have in the past, but i'm on the unlimited plan (mainly due to downloading linux iso's) and get alright speeds across the board considering i'm a wee way from the exchange.


Out of interest,   where were you downloading this from - ie what torrent site -  as its clearly a monitored one so would be good to know .

Perhaps when these start coming out - people could post them along with where they got caught and build a little database of places.     Not that I would use such a thing.

Im going to keep on running with just peerguardian and a false public IP for a while. Yeah, no incoming connections sucks for performance but better than being caught, and after warning one will just close the slingshot account.

Well if the dumb and greedy tv and movie networks made available the content to people outside the US then would not have this big of a piracy issue. I use VPN to watch hulu, netflix and bbc iplayer every day. I pay for netflix. I watch the ad's on hulu even though they are US based but I do not want to wait months before the same broadcast of my favourite tv would be done in NZ.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I'd be INCREDIBLY dubious of WorldNet's identification of you here...

- Local Infringing Time : 2011-06-29 00:01:54
- NZ Infringing Time : 2011-06-28 20:01:54

The supplied notice lists the infringement time as 2011-06-29 00:01:54 EDT (GMT-4) which would be 2011-06-29 16:01:54 NZST - 16 hours ahead of the quoted local time, not 4 hours behind it. Idiots.

In fact unless the infringement was detected in Tonga there really is nowhere that could be ahead of NZ time with their Local time.

It won't be long before they find this activity to be illegal also - after all, this still means that you are watching TV programs that NZ are not licenced to be viewed in NZ yet (and may never be).

It also means you are not seeing the NZ adverts, which go some way to paying for the programs to be broadcast here - even if like me you record all you watch on mySky(etc) and FF through them.

Isn't that what the NZ broadcasters are trying to protect as part of this enforcement?  Then the money goes around - NZ Adverts pay for shows - broadcasters pay for licence to show - US companies continue to get very rich.

Cynical! Me?

I'm struggling to find a copy of the various (13 I think) pieces of information each rights holder notice must contain, but date and time of alleged offending is just one of them...

and having the wrong date and time (as this one surely does) would mean it's a null notice I would hope.

I've said it elsewhere and I'll say it again - this isn't a problem with copyright so much as it is with an antiquated business model that no longer fits customers' needs.

Netflix in the US now accounts for between one third and half of all internet traffic. That says to me there's a market for content and that customers are willing to pay for it.

Also I see movie ticket sales are up dramatically in the latest research I saw. Clearly piracy (arrr) is happening but I question whether it's having the impact on income that the studios would have us believe.

Whilst I know what you mean chap, it is right now a copyright issue.... until they change their business model and law
