    kateman, it is not the software spying on anyone.
    It is a company, BayTSP. They are monitoring p2p activity, as per their press release they cover %100 of eMule and Bittorent transfers and monitor them.
    Based on what's being transmitted, they ping the ip, find out who is the lease holder (ISP) of that IP and send a letter to that ISP. In order, that ISP looks through their logs and finds whom the IP was leased to (if DHCP) or who is the holder of that static IP at that given date in that letter.

    And finally they attach the letter from BayTSP and write their own, send it to the customer with warning.

    Unless you are using multiple proxies, it is difficult to hide from this method, and best way to get out of it is not to download any copyrighted material.

    You know what, from all I have been reading at various sites, I have never seen anyone getting a letter from verizon.. This is strange. It could be due to two things...
    A) Verizon does not keep track of their IP lease log sheets
    B) Verizon receives the letter but just too lazy to send a message to anyone.

    THESE ARE ONLY POSSIBILITIES, UNLESS someone comes up and says he got a letter from Verizon, when and due to what.
