Chances of getting caught pirating Jun. 29th, 2012 @ 01:04 AM

What are the chances these days of actually getting caught doing these? Nowadays with pirating being like a normal thing, you would think there would be extra measures being taken. So what are the chances of actually getting caught torrenting and all that?

I was "caught" once when my ISP found that I downloaded Where The Wild Things Are, they told me not to do it and I went back to doing it. Now I pirate more than ever.

Let me put your mind at ease.

If you are caught downloading movies by your internet company, they will just send you a letter telling you to stop. If you don't do it after that, your fine.

Well, it's just that I read this news article earlier about a woman who was fined over a million dollars just for download 24 songs. So, I just got a little concerned.

Usually you have nothing to fear. There is only like a 1.5% chance of them actually discovering or even caring that you pirated something. The one time my friend got caught pirating, she was sent a letter, and just ignored it. Nothing happened.

0% chance as long as you're not an idiot who uses public trackers

Meh, I was told that it's not really a big deal. Like you said, so many people do it now that it's hard to catch everybody. With technology nowadays they can find you, but honestly, they're really going to be going after the ones that host the torrent/torrent sites. It also depends what you torrent, because if you're doing all the popular pop songs there is a bigger chance.

I was also told that even if you get caught the first time is just a slap on the wrist. Even that is rare, but just in case they say not to seed and be a little careful.

What are the chances of getting caught emulating games?

None. Cops dont give a flying fuck. They have donuts to eat, and parties to crush, you know.
