C & F for illegally downloading files?

Postby potatomato » Sat Dec 07, 2013 2:03 am

So this is a potentially really dumb question, but fellow law students have psyched me out about it: if I've torrented movies/music/shows/etc. while in law school, is that a concern for the ABA c&f section?

Not unless you've been sued for it. Are you also going to disclose that you logged into your friend's facebook page once to post a "haha hacked" status, which might technically be a violation of federal law? What about your jaywalking habits? Nah.

Haha ok thanks, that makes sense. I mean, that's what I thought, but a bunch of people were saying how they'd know etc. etc. and I guess I got paranoid. (I haven't gotten caught or sued, if those weren't rhetorical.)

Did you ask them *how* they would know?

Also, maybe you should just stop ripping digital media so you don't have to worry about it.

If I learned anything in my Evidence class, it's that they can ask you about it, but if you deny it, they can't prove it with extrinsic evidence.

I got DMCA letter pwned at school. C&F didn't even make me have a sitdown meeting with them.
