So, I don't know if this is the right area, but the description of this thread does include legal advice. This doesn't have anything to do wit photography, but still has to do with copyrights, but for video games. Well today I got an email from my internet service provider (ISP), Charter Communications, saying that there is a notice of a copyright infringement on my account, by either me, or someone else using my internet. but because it is my account, my internet, I am being held responsible. What happened was that my brother, downloaded Skyrim on his Macbook, so Zenimax Media, who owns the copyright for The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, sent a "Notice of Copyright Infringement" to Charter, after Charter determined that the IP Adress was linked to my account, they contacted me, informing me of the copyright infringement. I know for a fact that it was my brother who downloaded this game. The letter from Zenimax, stated that: " We urge you to take immediate action to stop this infringing activity and immediately inform us of the results of your actions." I told my dad about this, and he didn't say much, other than that my brother should confess. After that I called my brother to tell him about it, he didn't really seem that shocked or worried about it. I told him that I would talk to him when I came home from work. Personally, even if I tell him to do something about it, he probably won't. For example, my brother didn't vacuum the floors when I asked him to,and he didn't steam clean the carpet in his room, after I told him twice to do it, and gave him 24 hours to steam clean. I'll be surprised if he does do something about it, but I know that after a little while, he'll be go back to downloading illegally again. He did use bittorrent to download the game, as was stated in the copyright infringement letter from Zenimax. I'm just curious, because the internet is under my name, what would happen to me if my brother doesn't confess to his crimes? What if my brother does confess to the crimes, can I still be punishable? Could this affect my credit score or other accounts, even though it is not my fault?
