Starlink broadband sends notice to a customer who downloads pirated content just to see what happens

On Reddit, a Starlink user known as substrate-97 said he was downloading pirated content without a VPN to see what would happen, and he received a notice from the company. He shared a screenshot of the note, on Reddit. “Been purposefully torrenting without a VPN to see what world happen and finally got a notice”, says substrate-97. Substrate-97 went on to say that he has been doing this for the past two months, ever since he received starlink. It's been 'low-key', he says.

The notice sent by Elon Musk's Starlink  broadband mentioned, ''We must insist that you and/or others using your Starlink service refrain from illegal downloads of copyrighted content. Downloading copyrighted materials without a license may lead to suspension or termination of your service, and put you at risk of legal action by the content owner.” The Copyright Act in India has similar piracy laws, with criminals facing a three-year imprisonment and a fine of up to Rs 3 lakh for streaming, copying, displaying, or duplicating illegal content.

For your information, Elon Musk's Starlink broadband, which will be delivered via orbital satellites, is expected to launch in India in 2022, if it clears the current regulatory hurdles.
