    Date: 2005/10/11 Tue AM 04:31:32 EDT
    Subject:[10.11.2005 1234567] Notice of Copyright Infringement

    Dear Customer,

    We are writing on behalf of Cox Communications to advise you that we have
    received a notification that you are using your Cox High Speed Internet service
    to post or transmit material that infringes the copyrights of a complainant's
    members. We have included a copy of the complaint letter. Pursuant to the
    provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), which is codified
    at 17 U.S.C. ? 512, upon receiving such notification, Cox is required to "act
    expeditiously to remove, or disable access to" the infringing material in order
    to avoid liability for any alleged copyright infringement. Accordingly, Cox
    will suspend your account and disable your connection to the Internet within 24
    hours of your receipt of this email if the offending material is not removed.

    Please be aware that the DMCA also provides procedures by which a subscriber
    accused of copyright violation can respond to the allegations of infringement
    and, under certain circumstances, cause his or her account to be reinstated.
    To do so, however, the response must meet certain criteria. Pursuant to
    section (g) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. ? 512(g)), you have the right to submit to
    Cox a counter-notification which, to be effective, must include the following

    (a) a physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
    (b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has
    been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was
    removed or disabled;
    (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith
    belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or
    misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
    (d) the subscriber?s name, address, and telephone number and a statement that
    the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for
    the judicial district in which the address is located.

    In the event that you submit to Cox a counter-notification that includes these
    elements, Cox will forward your counter notification to the complainant and
    advise them that Cox will cease disabling access to the allegedly infringing
    material in ten (10) business days. Unless the complainant notifies us that it
    has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in the
    allegedly infringing activity prior to the expiration of those ten (10)
    business days, Cox will reactivate your account.

    my question is how do i proceed from here? i've been to other places and people have received this same thing, often multiple times, so i'm not the only with this problem. my mom is going to call cox today and i told her i dled the ep and it's since been deleted. they cited me for dling the ep april 9th so that's almost a month ago and it's gone but if my mom calls cox and says it's gone, will that be like a trick confession to admitting dling it and will i face charges? has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you handle it?

    needless to say i'm going to limit, if not stop completely, my interaction with bittorents(and bitcomet). does anyone else use bittorrents? if so what do you use? i've read people using azureus with p2p guardian and some other shit with mixed reviews. people say nothing happens with it, others say the day they downloaded something with p2p guardian all kinds of ip blocking. i can only sometimes find really rare stuff off bittorent and i wanted to use it but be safe.

    does anyone else use newzbin? i used to until bittorrent came up. now i'll go back to that.

    Follow the instructions. Delete the message and stop downloading.
    Silence, unbeliever!! Our weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the pope, and nice red uniforms.... Oh, bloody hell.
