Advice on behaviour: File sharing warning
Those receiving a warning often tend to sign the enclosed cease-and-desist declaration or sign the settlement so as to avoid further costs. However more often than not no copyright has been infringed, meaning that people need not have paid. Please refrain from accepting a detailed settlement offer that is presented as very favourable. Settlement offers like these are only very rarely in line with what you have or have not done.
You should NEVER respond to a warning yourself and/or sign any enclosed document or even write one up yourself. There is a risk of you confessing that you are guilty of copyright infringement without you even realising it. In these cases it makes no difference whether or not you have in fact committed a copyright infringement. Any defence not specifically tailored to your cases opens the floodgates for damage claims. Please follow three basic steps to ensure that you respond to the warning in an appropriate manner:
Keep calm: Anyone would become nervous in view of the often incredibly high damage claims. However do not let this throw you off. These claims can almost always be limited or even eliminated completely if you get professional help.
Act quickly: The deadline in the warning often does not give you an awful lot of time. However this is no reason to let the deadline pass. The same holds true even if you are convinced that you did not commit said copyright infringement! Ignoring this deadline can result in considerable costs that will then be very difficult to avoid.
