Default Ummm?

Dear Internet Access Subscriber:

Charter Communications ("Charter") has been notified by a copyright owner that
your Internet account has been involved in the exchange of unauthorized copies
of copyrighted material (music, movies, or software). We are enclosing a copy
of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice that Charter received from
the copyright holder.

It is possible that this activity has occurred without your permission or
knowledge by an unauthorized user, a minor who may not fully understand the
copyright laws, or even as a result of a computer virus. However, as a Charter
Internet account owner, you can be held liable for this activity.

As a personal computer owner and a user of the Internet, we ask that you be
aware of the following: Violations of federal Copyright law can result in civil
and/or criminal liability, including payment of monetary damages, costs and
attorneys' fees to the copyright owner. See 17 U.S.C. �� 504-506. In addition,
Charter's Acceptable Use Policy explicitly prohibits copyright infringement by
Charter High-Speed Internet users. Specifically, Section 3 states:

NO COPYRIGHT OR TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
Customer will not use, or allow others to use, the Service to send or receive,
or otherwise use any information which infringes the patents, trademarks,
copyrights, trade secrets or proprietary rights of any other person or entity.
This includes, but is not limited to, digitization of music, movies, photographs
or other copyrighted materials or software. Customer must obtain appropriate
authorization from such other person or entity prior to sending, receiving or
using such materials. Customer represents and warrants that Customer is the
author and copyright owner and/or authorized licensee with respect to any hosted
content and Customer further represents and warrants that no hosted content
violates the trademark, copyright, domain name or intellectual property rights
of any third party. Charter assumes no responsibility, and Customer assumes all
risks regarding the determination of whether material is in the public domain,
or may otherwise be used for such purposes.

Charter is registered under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA).
Under the DMCA, copyright owners have the right to notify Charter if they
believe that a Charter customer has infringed the copyright owner�s work(s). If
Charter receives a notice from a copyright owner alleging any Customer has
committed copyright infringement, Charter will notify the Customer of the
alleged infringement. Charter may determine that Customer is a repeat copyright
infringer if Charter learns that Customer has engaged in online copyright
infringement on more than one occasion. Charter reserves the right to suspend
or terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers.

We ask that you take immediate action to remove the infringing material from
your computer and stop its exchange. If Charter continues to receive DMCA
notices regarding your account, or if you violate any other clause of Charter's
Acceptable Use Policy, we will have no choice but to terminate your account.
You may view Charter's rules and policies at
http://www.charter.com/site/policies.aspx.

If you need assistance in removing the referenced infringing material, please
refer to the Security Center at http://www.charter.com.

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact us at
1-866-229-7286. Representatives will be available to take your call Monday
through Friday, 7am - 11pm, Saturday and Sunday, 7am - 4pm (Central Time).

Sincerely,

Charter High-Speed Internet Security Team

Re: Unauthorized Use of NBC Universal Properties
Notice ID: 14-6307984
23 Jul 2006 08:07:45 GMT

Dear Sir or Madam:

Please be advised that NBC Universal and/or its subsidiary and affiliated
companies (collectively, NBC Universal) are the owners of exclusive rights
protected under copyright law and other intellectual property rights in many
motion pictures and television programs, including the title(s) listed below
(the NBC Universal Properties). NBC Universal diligently enforces its rights in
its motion pictures.

It has come to our attention that Charter Communications is the service provider
for the IP address listed below, from which unauthorized copying and
distribution (downloading, uploading, file serving, file "swapping" or other
similar activities) of the NBC Universal Property or Properties listed below, or
portion(s) thereof, is taking place. We believe that the Internet access of the
user engaging in this infringement is provided by Charter Communications or a
downstream service provider who purchases this connectivity from Charter
Communications.

This unauthorized copying and distribution constitutes copyright infringement
under Section 106 of the U.S. Copyright Act. Depending upon the type of service
Charter Communications is providing to this IP address, it may have legal and/or
equitable liability if it does not expeditiously remove or disable access to the
motion picture(s) listed below, or if it fails to implement a policy that
provides for termination of subscribers who are repeat infringers (see 17 U.S.C.
512).

Despite the above, NBC Universal believes that the entire Internet community
benefits when these matters are resolved cooperatively. We urge you to take
immediate action to stop this infringing activity and inform us of the results
of your actions. We appreciate your efforts toward this common goal.

The undersigned has a good faith belief that use of the NBC Universal Property
or Properties in the manner described herein is not authorized by NBC Universal,
its agent or the law. The information contained in this notification is
accurate. Under penalty of perjury, the undersigned is authorized to act on
behalf of NBC Universal with respect to this matter.

Please be advised that this letter is not intended to be a complete statement of
the facts or law as they may pertain to this matter or of NBC Universal's
positions, rights or remedies, legal or equitable, all of which are specifically
reserved.

Please send us a prompt response indicating the actions you have takento resolve
this matter, making sure to reference the Notice ID number above in your
response.

A full address and contact details suggest it could be legit. Call the contacts listed to verify just to make sure it doesn't go any further

I have seen on other forums where people get the same thing. I googled it, I am going to google it again. And they told me to respond via the web thing. So I did. I will look around and research it some, but if you think I should really call David, I will.

edit: Should I call Aaron or Charter?

Yeah I used limewire today without thinking, lol. When I started to, I immediately closed it o.O

@David
I looked around at those others I saw posted on various forums, and Aaron signed those too. This also looks more like a warning too. I haven't received any other emails from them yet either.
