    I uploaded my first torrent today ***link removed by loco***

    And I've got a few downloaders already, but I'm a bit weary, can I get in trouble for uploading a torrent? I live in the UK so the laws say you can't download etc...But I ripped these futurama episodes from my own dvds, and for personal storage purposes myself, and thought maybe other people would want to do the same, so I uploaded it.

    Can I get in trouble?

    Just close your client and delete the torrent within your folder that you are seeding from. As far as closing you account, contact the admins and request to close your account.

    Unfortunately, it's not. Since the MPAA are money-sucking SOB's, they'll sue for just about anything movie related.

    Anyways, you can get something called Peerguardian 2. It's stops bad IP's from connecting to you.

    awesome, thanks for the help. I'll be sure to put it on every PC in the house, I'm guessing the MPAA are too stupid to figure out how to bypass PG2 hah

    It just really blocks the IP. I don't know if there ignorant to bypass it, but I'm sure if they really wanted to, they could.

    PG2 isn't a bullet proof vest, it lessens your chances but you can still get caught.

    Of course I realize it isn't bullet proof, nothing is bullet proof. But it's still good to use. Tbh it surprised me that the first day I got it it blocked

    Time Warner Telecom
    AAFEC/Barracks (This came up while I was downloading Looney Tunes. Someone in the military was downloading looney tunes? Wow)
    Golden Lines|Anti-p2p
    ServerBeach Emule Servers|p2p fakes
    Bittorrent Fakes

    And f'cking SAVVIS about 900 times a day. And Omniture.

    Lol, yeah you'll get more. You should see what it's like when you're downloading a heavily seeded torrent, or a new one.
    I read somewhere someone was downloading Halo 3, and got a block from the Pentagon. I think it was on here, or another site.
