Hi guys I have a couple questions for all the people who live in the United States and pirate or know people who pirate software. In Canada we do it all the time and our internet providers do not report us to the companies nor track the type of things we download (at least to my knowledge). Now I have a friend in the united States who downloaded a the movie The Matrix (or some other sci-fi movie i cant recall exactly) and was promptly sent a letter threatening of a potential law suit. He read the user license agreement and discovered that he can not be sued if he owns a copy of the movie so he went out and bought one. My question being, how often does this happen, how often do people get sued, and what are the penalties for this, as i find it shocking that the companies/government would go so far over a couple programs or movies. Any responses appreciated.
