Respect Copyrighted Material And Avoid Digital Piracy

With so many options out there for viewing movies and TV shows online, it can be confusing to find the real thing content that doesn't involve copyright infringement. In addition, others could be using your Internet account without your knowledge to conduct illegal activities. It's important you understand that downloading pirated content through a site like BitTorrent is illegal and organizations are actively protecting these rights.

For example, the Copyright Alert System (CAS) is designed to help consumers understand when files may have been shared illegally on peer-2-peer (P2P) networks through their Internet accounts. According to, "artists, moviemakers and other owners of content join public P2P networks to see if the music, movies, and TV shows they've made available are being shared without permission and in violation of U.S. copyright law. If they notice that a file is being shared illegally, they notify the appropriate Internet Service Provider (ISP) and that ISP, in turn, passes on that notice to their subscriber as a Copyright Alert."

NCKCN is receiving CAS notifications regarding copyright infringement by our Internet customers. Sharing illegal content violates the NCKCN/Cunningham Acceptable Use Policy. Disciplinary action including fees associated with tracking and notifying customers of violations up to, and including, termination of the Internet account for repeat violators may be taken.

If you are alerted about unlawful content sharing, we trust that you will take the appropriate steps to correct the situation. To help avoid these issues in the future, follow these tips:

  • Watch for titles that are "too new to be true." Movies that have yet to be released in theaters, or which are still out in theaters, are not legally available online. If very recent titles are being sold or traded online, they are almost invariably illegal copies.

  • Trust your eyes and ears. In many cases, the quality of illegal copies is inferior with poor sound and can appear blurry or shaky.

  • Be cautious when websites make offers that are "too good to be true." Be wary of "free" content when searching for and purchasing downloads from unfamiliar sites; they typically indicate pirated product. Look out for terms like "Unlimited Movie Downloads," "100% legal," and "Millions of Files Shared." Offers for one-time or yearly fees with no details and no contact information should also alert you that you have entered an illegal site.

As you look for entertainment online, remember to be respectful of the artists' work and keep your downloading within legal parameters. If you have any questions about our policies regarding digital piracy, call NCKCN at 785-738-2218.
