A judge said that... it is not law on the books when a judge says something.
I know this is an exception to the rule, but still.

You might want to look up "decimation". I'm just sayin'. Oh hell, look up the past tense, "decimated" while you're at it.Furthermore anyone summoned should counter sue for court fees, decimation of character and lost time at work.
Sure, first they go after the people who downloaded movie illegally, then they'll be deciding what websites you can't go to as well.
Of course they can always subpoena your harddrives, look what they did with geohotz. It really isn't that hard or expensive to do. It isn't even that hard to search for files on a harddrive. With the Windows search function and a few minutes I can find your music and movies. People don't hide pirated stuff like they hide their porn, very easy to find.matrix86 said:

But the smartest thing to do in this case is to ask for proof that you were the one who did the downloading and not someone else piggy-backing off of you. Either the lawyers will ask the court to shell out money for warrants of hard drive seizures or they'll all just say "you know what? Don't worry about it. They're right. We have no proof it was them." Just think about how much money and time would be spent on getting warrants approved and then going through all the info on all those hard drives. It just isn't worth it. Unfortunately, if you caught downloading, you most likely aren't smart enough to think of this, lol.
