You are being contacted on behalf of

Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.

and its affiliated companies because your Internet account was identified as having been used recently to illegally copy and/or distribute copyright protected works. The name of the movie or TV show, the date and time at which the claimed infringement took place, the IP address, and other relevant information relating to this notice is summarized for you at the bottom of this letter.

Our goal is to ensure you take action to prevent your Internet account from being used for illegal activities in the future, and to encourage you to take advantage of the many exciting and innovative ways you can now enjoy movie and TV content online legally. In Canada, there are more and more legitimate sites and services that provide high-quality, on demand film and TV shows, offering the easiest, fastest, safest, highest quality product and viewing experience possible. If you visit WHERE TO WATCH IN CANADA, you will find an array of different types of sites and services offering numerous ways to legally access the entertainment you want.

You should also be aware that many of the sites, including "peer-to-peer" sites used to illegally download or watch movies and TV shows, are unsafe for consumers and can be manipulated to steal personal information. Internet security experts warn that accessing these sites can infect computers and devices, and render the user vulnerable to spam, viruses, malware or phishing attacks.

Now that you have received this notice of claimed infringement associated with your Internet account, there are some things that you can do immediately to avoid receiving further notices and to prevent more serious consequences that may follow.

These actions include:

1. Stop downloading or uploading movies or TV shows without authorization when doing so constitutes copyright infringement;
2. Permanently delete from your computer(s) all unauthorized copies you may have already made of these movies and TV shows and consider disabling or deleting the peer to peer software that facilitates that activity; and
3. Make sure that anyone else who is authorized to use your Internet account is made aware of this notice - and take steps to ensure that your Internet account cannot be used by someone who is not authorized to do so.

The illegal copying and distribution of copyrighted works are prohibited under the Canadian Copyright Act. In addition, unauthorized copying and/or distributing of copyrighted content using your Internet account may be a violation of your ISP's terms of service for which there are other consequences. Under Canada?s Copyright law, your ISP is now required to forward this notice to you, inform us that the notice has been forwarded, and retain records associated with this notice for prescribed periods of time.

The "Respect Copyright in Canada" website, accessible at Respect Copyright in Canada , offers resources to help you to ensure that your Internet account is not being used to violate copyright law. You can also learn how illegal reproduction and distribution of movies and TV shows hurts the Canadian economy and is a threat to the over 130,000 jobs across Canada in film and TV production alone.

If, after visiting Respect Copyright in Canada you still have questions, or if you believe that there has been an error, and you wish to contact us, you may do so by email at wb.ca.notice@ap.markmonitor.com

Please cite the Reference ID

in the subject line of your email and please also let us know with which ISP you have your Internet account.

Shaw Copyright Notice

They can't do shit. Just don't download anything by Warner. They are assholes and target anyone that torrents there shit. They have to give you a couple warnings before they can actually take legal action.

You can always use a vpn just to be safe. PIA is always a good choice.

I heard a while ago that if you own a hardcopy of anything you've downloaded, you're legally an owner of the property and can't be persecuted for obtaining the content in another format, ie. illegally downloading. So if you're concerned you might get busted for downloading a specific movie, go buy the DVD and apparently you're ok in a court of law.

Apparently this is a Canadian law and does not apply in the states. That said, I don't know if anything has changed since I heard this as it was a few years ago...

Be safe, don't illegally DL.

That may be true a year ago, but it's becoming more common for copyright holders to go after illegal downloaders in Canada now where they will seek a court order and put you through a legal process. Now that Bill C-51 is passed a few days ago, the situation will only get worse.

Chatham, Ont.$based ISP says 2014 ruling allows 'copyright trolls' to prey on customers in Canada

CBC News Posted: Mar 19, 2015 5:05 PM ET Last Updated: Mar 20, 2015 8:23 AM ET

U.S. production company Voltage Pictures must pay $21,500 to internet service provider TekSavvy, to cover the costs of receiving the names and addresses of about 2,000 customers
who allegedly downloaded movies online.

But the Chatham, Ont.$based ISP says that covers only six per cent of the costs it incurred fighting for its customers' privacy.
The Federal Court ruled in February 2014 that TekSavvy must hand over the personal information of people who illegally downloaded movies owned by Voltage, including highprofile
films such as The Hurt Locker and Dallas Buyers Club. Voltage first requested TekSavvy's customer information in 2012.
TekSavvy ordered to ID alleged movie downloaders
Digital privacy act opens copyright loophole that TekSavvy$Voltage case closed
"For consumers concerned about privacy, this narrow reading sends the wrong signal," TekSavvy CEO Marc Gaudrault said in a press release. "It tells copyright claimants that
protecting the end$users' privacy is someone else's problem not something whose costs they need worry about."
According to Michael Geist, a University of Ottawa law professor and Canada research chair in internet and e$commerce law, TekSavvy said it was owed $346,480.68, mainly from
legal fees and technical costs. Voltage, on the other hand, argued that it owed the ISP $884.
That gulf between the costs TekSavvy says it incurred and the amount it was given as compensation makes it less likely for ISPs to fight for the privacy of its customers in court,
says Geist.
"That is a bad message for privacy," he writes.

TekSavvy stuck with the bill after handing over IDs of alleged movie downloaders - Technology & Science - CBC News

I might as well sign up for Netflix if I have to pay for VPN.

I don't even download that much movies , maybe like 1-2 a week. And I still get this notice. Pretty BS, not sure if I'm gonna get sued though, but if I am... wouldn't like millions of other people out there will fall with me?

You're most likely not gonna get sued, but the opportunity is there, if they wish to proceed.

I received my first notice like this from Shaw for downloading one of the leaked episodes of Game of thrones.

I think the Max fine is 10k? Could be wrong.

I laughed because I rarely download stuff, so it figures lol... and most of my friends download tons of shit, and most still have yet to get a warning.
