Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Did you receive the email through your Internet service provider?

Expert:  Debra replied 4 months ago.

These are email that people are getting all over the country. But the bot***** *****ne is that the copyright holder does not have your contact information or identity and Cogeco cannot give it out unless they are under a court order.

And there is virtually no likelihood that the copyright holder is going to seek a court order in a case like this.

So what most people do is ignore the emails and that is all.

Does that make sense?

what i was wanting to know is from what others have said with this company, canipre, they will not stop the notices...and the settlement demand increases, so you are saying just keep ignoring them all? as opposed to paying the 198.00?
Expert:  Debra replied 4 months ago.

I cannot tell you what to do.

But in my experience the emails stop in a while.

I personally would not pay and don't know anyone that would.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
what you have told me is information i already read online...just ignore it, they cant identify me and likely wont pursue further action, but i need to know if i pay it, will the continued notices cease?
Expert:  Debra replied 4 months ago.

If you pay what they are asking for then they will stop asking for what you paid for. But if you download other works they hold the copyright to not only will then continue sending them when discovered but then they will have your identity.

Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
