Hey, i thought the RIAA etc was only contacting ISP’s in the USA, but recently i got this email from my ISP (Dodo Internet) I’m from Australia and im using a 56K modem. My dad was using Kazaalite but i think he had the locale set to the USA instead of Australia and didn’t have the option to block the RIAA etc’s address range enabled, however he did have the “users can’t gain a list of all your shared files” enabled.
Has anyone else from Australia been threatened by their ISP?
This is the email message from my isp
