This is so open to abuse it's pitiful.  But you know all the politicians will be exempt...

Maybe you should have read the info. I doubt it was a blank page with just the link that said "Dark Knight." If it was a camera then it probably said "cam or maybe telesync." Either way, it doesn't matter. It could have been an R5 or a screener; but you still downloaded it.

 

Glad I don't live in France.

Foreign theatre or not you still downloaded Dark Night illegally.  Your mistake wasn’t accidental you meant to download it, just like you said.

Something liek this is to easy to abuse or get wrong. I would hope if it ihits the use "strikes" can be revoked.

 Id hate to loose my interent for a year over lagitimate p2p.

 

For example i recently was geting some torents on shows and movies. I never saw the Dark Knight and there was a torent for one. Figured it might be something interesting. But whan i opend it i noticed the tel l tale signs of a camcorder in a forign theatre and promplty deleted it. Charter paretned was notified of a ileagle download and tracked it to my ip wit ha cease and desist (which i had done before the email)

i'd hate to think if i made 2 more mistakes id loose my net for a year.
