Cooleo, It's amazing what being told all this does for the nerves, Up until I got these replies I was quite literally a trembling mess, Quite calm now

Nope just Chrome, the only time he uses a vpn is when the ISP blocks a site, you really have nothing to worry about

Nice, I know it seems like I'm being very over the top with this but I get very nervous with all this type of stuff, Appreciate the replies though

Anyway thanks for the replies everyone, Really put my mind at ease
It's not how much you steal but specifically what you steal.

A few years ago a couple of my friends got stung £500 fines for downloading DS games. One of them literally downloaded one.

Nintendo as you know are s**t hot when it comes to protecting their stuff.

Since then I've not heard any stories at all. That was about 10 years ago. However, what I do know is that you are 100% responsible for what happens on your connection. That is why ISPs now put a mandatory WIFI password on your router, because then they can just say "well you gave out the password".

The old "it was my son/young relative" etc carries no weight now.

So stop your cousin as it's your neck he's putting on the chopping block.

I disabled my Wifi the day I got plugged in, He used my rig which is hardwired to do all that stuff and it now has a password lock on it, But as others have said I have nothing to worry about, Moving on

That doesn't apply for the UK at the moment Alien, the relevant Act (With regards to responsibility of and identification of the culprit for online crimes) now is the "Investigatory Powers Act 2016", with Part 3 "Authorisations for obtaining communications data" detailing the quite rigorous process an investigatory body has to go through for "IP resolution" (IE determining who was actually behind an IP address(And accompanying digital data) when a crime was committed, something which has to be done obviously before any charge could be pressed). Some examples of the process is provided in the act while discussing the request filter[Obviously realistically these kinds of online crimes are only investigated if they're quite serious like terrorist or grooming related inquiries]:

Found here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/...on/6/index.htm

Part of the reason piracy enforcement here is non-existent is because the courts don't consider IP addresses and such on their own as admissible identifiable evidence, hence why these extra processes are required for admissible charges to be brought against someone who may have committed any crime online.
