EA are watching your torrents. [CLOSED]

Post by PersonPlaysGames on Sun 05 Aug 2018, 08:18

I really just got on here to tell you guys that EA hit my ISP with a DMCA cease and desist four times downloading from your TS4 torrents. Had IP address, timestamps, file name, the friggin works, it was actually quite freakycreepy, and I don't know how they knew, but, figured I should let you all know EA are somehow watching your torrents. Two of them, at least, were seeding, not being downloaded, I'm fairly sure the other two were downloaded. The four that flagged for me were Toddler Stuff, Cats & Dogs, Jungle Adventure, and Seasons.

Good luck.

If I were more cynical, I would now reply that in all likelihood you will need to have more luck than us (as there is a chance your internet account will be terminated), but thanks for the "heads-up" anyway, I suppose. And of course this is well-known, that copyright holders in general are monitoring the internet traffic in such a way as to send these threatening letters.

To say something more helpful as well here, there is a reason why we are now putting one or two direct download links on newer TS4 releases. Could be an alternative for the event that the torrents are being 'monitored'.
