So are they basing this on you downloading it or on making it available for others?
Apologies for the top post...

This is surely a topic for another list, but it seems to me it'd be fairly difficult to prove unless they downloaded part of the movie from your IP and verified that what they got really was a part of the movie. If they're going after any IP that connected to and downloaded from an agent of the studio (and thats what it sounds like) who hosted the file, can they really expect to prosecute people for downloading something they were giving away?
