Time Warner Disrupting Internet Service to Warn Torrent Users?
A reader wrote, "I came home to find my Internet cut off. Turns out Warner Bros got my IP address from a ROM emulator I downloaded containing some Harry Potter games. I have downloaded countless TV shows over the last 5 years. They busted me on some Harry Potter games I didn't even want. I was going for some old Gameboy games to add to an emulator I put on my Wii, and those just happened to be along for the ride.
First violation is a warning. Second one carries a $39.95 fee. Looks like I'm done with torrents. Though I may have to take the risk to finish up this series of Ashes to Ashes."
Has anyone else been warned about using BitTorrent or had their Internet service disrupted?
