    I suggest you NordVpn , easy to use , not complicated.You will get many more advantages with it. Ex: unblock netflix country restrictions...

    Use NordVpn
  • Too funny. Yourre caught
  • Hi, everybody is talking about getting a vpn but as I understand you don’t really need it. I download quite a lot of stuff on the internet and even don’t pay for a vpn. Of course make sure your wifi is secured, but I would not do anything more than that. Just don’t worry about it and continue about your day. Even if you receive 10 letters not any legal action have been taken in Quebec.
    Hope this helped.
  • The ISP is obligated to send you that notice but it most likely ends there. Perhaps you downloaded a torrent or used an app to stream TV/Movies that uses torrent such as popcorntime. If you are worried, just use a VPN to anonymize your IP.

    From the link in the screenshot: http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/oca-bc.nsf/eng/ca02920.html

    What should I do if I receive a notice?

    The Notice and Notice regime aims to discourage online infringement. Receiving a notice does not necessarily mean that you have in fact infringed copyright or that you will be sued for copyright infringement.

    If you receive a notice, it must contain information that will help you understand the details of the allegation, including the date and time of the alleged conduct. For instance, you may receive a notice from a copyright owner alleging that you, or someone using your Internet address, have engaged in illegal downloading or illegally sharing a song or movie.

    It is possible that the notice refers to acts that were undertaken by someone using your Internet connection without your knowledge. You may want to ensure that your home network is secured by a strong password to prevent others from using your Internet connection to engage in copyright infringement.
