So I just got a new Google TV (GTV) and was checking out all of the apps for it and what they can do, I downloaded one named "Mitty" which (apparently) uses Bittorrent as it's backend, searched for the first movie that came to mind at the moment, which was the new Batman movie: The Dark Knight Rises, thought I'd grab it to see how the app worked as I figured the movie itself would look like ish seeing that it's not the real thing, and what do I get in my email box the next morning?

BOOM! (I X'd out the personal parts)

Copyright work(s) identified in the notification of claimed infringement:

Title: The Dark Knight Rises
Timestamp: 2012-08-24T XXXXX
Port: 53810
Type: BitTorrent
Torrent Hash: 3855a2b58a5d375e1d9d6a6568c8144038db3db6
Filename: The Dark Knight Rises 2012 720p TS NEW SOURCE XViD AC3 - MATiNE
Filename: The Dark Knight Rises 2012 720p TS NEW SOURCE XViD AC3 - MATiNE
Filesize: 3824 MB

So the big question is, when I pay over $200 a month to Comcast for their services, are they really willing to remove me as their customer because I downloaded a ~$10 movie (if I had paid for a movie ticket)? That's a whole lot of lost revenue on Comcast's part!

Re: "Notice of Claim of Copyright Infringement." - After ...

 No they wont. I am sure if you keep getting caught then possible. When I was starting my tech career I worked for a WISP or wireless isp. The rule we had was 3 times and your out. This rule was a soft rule and I never saw it inforced. This was 15 years ago so keep that in mind. It may have changed but I highly doubt it. I have a friend actually an old manager who has received 8. 

Play it safe google torrent VPN and you can pay or there are some sites that will give you a pptp VPN for free, even better is ipsec. The more packet encapsulation you can do the better. 

Then look up torrent proxies, those help as well. I dont use torrents to much. I use usenet but I pay for the access to the servers. Along with SSL and a VPN. However nothing is fool proof. It is just how much money the ISP wants to invest in your theft of a movie.
If I where to worry I wouldn't worry about the ISP but maybe big brother would probably act faster.
