I think this is great news. Let people around illegal downloaders know what their friends and loved ones are doing. It's one thing for a downloader to tell their mother/father/wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/etc that its just "downloading" and "everybody does it"..., easy for an uneducated parent or spouse to dismiss the actions and not prohibit it. But when moms and dads start getting letters from their ISP and learn that there is indeed a consequence for illegally downloading, then it may be a different story.

It's a sad world we live in where so many people don't consider it stealing when they acquire possession of an item without paying for it or receiving it as a gift, and they took possession of said item when the owner wasn't aware that it was being taken. How is this not stealing?

"Illegal downloading" is too tame of a word, it's like calling a bank robbery an "illegal withdrawal of funds"?

I was wondering how long it would take you to find this... it's a start, even if it is warning letters.
