To save some of the effort and repetition,
Only copyright infringers will receive the notices.
Everybody who uses torrents are pirating something.
If you pay for content, that's what you're supposed to do.
Content producers have the right to control access.
Anyone who wants something different than what the studios/labels want are pirates.
You only have rights to view/play the content. You do not own it.
Now that these points are made up front, they don't need to be repeated endlessly.
Did I miss one?
[edit to add]
It's against ISP TOS, therefore safe harbor provision can be selectively enforced.
Enforcement action is merely "educational" and short term, so it doesn't have lasting effect if you aren't a pirate.
Defending yourself for $35 is worth it if you aren't a pirate, since only pirates will get notices.
If you do nothing wrong, you won't get a notice.
You are responsible for your internet connection. You need to monitor your kids and Thanksgiving houseguests.
Wireless security is your responsibility. You deserve a notice if your wireless is hijacked.
If you make it to 5 notices, whatever happens is your fault.
The system will have no false positives. If you're tagged, it's real.
Don't sweat it until you get a notice. Then you get to take action. After all, you have 5 more to go.
Most people who claim innocence, are not really.
