Never knew you could get copywritten material. Wouldn't that be easy to track as it's on a server run by the cable company?
(Or so I assume since they always give you access)
OK, I've never done this myself, but I've heard you can use SABnzbd to connect to lets say, a Usenetserver account, and download just about anything you can think of. You enable RSS feeds and can download TV shows (HBO, TNT, anything pretty much). Also MP3's, books, etc. pretty much anything you can think of.
I don't think they can really track it, since it is not 1 file that contains the item you want. it is broken up into several (sometimes hundreds of parts) and then each part is downloaded and put together to form the file you want.
One thing I did not mention above properly. SABnzbd is the connection and setup to the server, use NZBIndex to search for say, MP3's, books, etc. or any single download you want.
I was able to locate
some print screens with Google, just as an example.
