Did you get a letter? Thousands just went out.
The news is reporting that this year about 50,000 already got one across all ISPs (Cox included).

What do you do Next?
Step 1 Research the web
Here are some links with many more links inside them

Typical retainers for Copyright law is 1 to 2 thousand
B. Defend your self on your own at first till you get served
web forms are only $10
Remember at this stage they do not know who you are so you have not been sued yet. The idea is to block the giving out of your name at first with this kit.
If they ever do sue you are can then hire a lawyer or just pay the out of court settlement.
