    Can someone please PM me their contact info, as I have a few questions for someone familiar with the US.

    Thanks.

    This should help you out, even if only as some primers for the kinds of things you might want to ask about.

    And if you are going to screw with someone else's intellectual property, don't drop the soap.

    Thanks uptown but I never actually gave away their product for free. They are just threatening me and I need to know what I should do.

    I just gave away a video outlining how to download stuff with bit torrent, but not anything specific to them.

    I have complied with the cease and desist and have removed the domain name, but they are asking for contact info.

    Do you think they will go through the trouble of trying to go through multiple providers in order to get my real info? I only have a few days to respond, but I am wondering if I am better off just not responding.
