    Actually read the law.

    "as long as you own a "legal" (VHS from TV included) copy then you can make a dup"

    since you pay for cable then you can legally make a VHS. then you have a legal copy and you are more then welcome to make a Digital copy

    I'm pretty sure you'd have quite the difficult time convincing any judge that what you're doing is legal. However, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to this stuff, so take that observation with a grain of salt.

    how much does 512k connection typically cost over there?

    DdogG - screw em man. Who the hell do they think they are anyway? Typical company these days. Lie to the customer and then rip him off

    Yeah, I heard that they were going to send letters out to the 1% or somesuch. I was pretty sure I'd get one but, lo, I did not.

    Then again I live in Seattle where everyone and their Gramma has broadband. In fact my neighbor has (no joke) 1.2 TERAbytes on our bridged WiFi network... He didn't get a letter either.

    I've had it with Comcast. My take is that this is just another scare tactic similar to the one they used on me to try to get me to purchace another IP since I have a NAT router. Feh... I told them to bugger off.

    Sad thing is that I can't get any other type of broadband here. well ok i CAN get 128kbps DSL for $60/month, but only that because, even though I live less than 500 meters from the nearest station, Qwest (the other Satan) has multiplexed the lines here. If I could get Speakeasy (like I threatened to) I would...

    When I called to ask what my limit was as I never recalled seeing this, I was told that there was no limit....... So I asked why I would recieve a letter.... they said that their customers are graded on a curve and that if everyone around me was using x amount of bandwidth, that I would be constrained to this amount as well........ Being as how I live in a community that is mostly elderly individuals, I would assume that my limit is extremely low.
    You are not the first this has happened to. I remember hearing about the exact same thing before on broadbandreports.

    Do they have your credit card number or other means of ruining you? If so you would be wise to reconsider.

    OOh man thats that stupid bull**** bandwidth limitation that Crapcast is doing now. I dont get it, they just increased our speeds from 1.5 megs to 3.5 megs and now they're going to pull this ****? Whats the f&%^ing point of downloading faster when we're limited to how much a month?

    See this is why I was and still am against the AT&T\Comcast take over (Comcast bought ATTBI, they didnt "merge" as they said they did), but nooooo James is just being paranoid... well I hate to tell you I told you so, but I TOLD YOU SO!

    EDIT: DdogG, dude, could you scan the letter and post it? Or email it to me. I want to read it if you dont mind, because I know for a fact that I will be getting one.
