    Over the last few days i have recieved 2 take down notices from Zen after
    being reported to them by Symantec.
    They say that i have been distributing Norton antivirus over Edonkey but i
    don't have any Norton products on
    my computer , nor am i trying to download it. I do use Edonkey , so how is
    this happening ?

  2. Can you post some details from Zen that back up their assertion. If not,
    have you asked them for these details? Without details, how can you
    determine what is being asserted?

    Assuming that Edonkey is a file sharing program, I would suspect as some
    point you may have downloaded it (even if you're not using it) and now
    Edonkey is sharing it on a peer-to-peer basis becasue it's in your shared
    folder.

    Have a look!

    You might be acting as a type of node or ultrapeer, so everyone searching
    will see you as hosting everything held by hundreds of people connecting to
    you!
    Change your settings and ask the ISP for proof - a lot of ISPs look for ways
    of throwing customers off once locked into 12months contract. It saves
    bandwidth and gives income for nothing.

  7. 1 month contracts with Zen. They know that they provide a good service, so
    don't need to lock people in. People stay with Zen because of the quality of
    service, uncapped usage, and reliability.

    Zen are also fair when they issue warnings. Remove Edonkey from your system,
    and inform Zen you have done this. That should be the end of the matter.

    Zen are also fair when they issue warnings. Remove Edonkey from your system,
    If nothing else, install PeerGuardian2* and move over to one of the
    networks that hasn`t been sued yet (bittorrent is harder to pin down
    afaik) :-}

    Blocklist Manager also intergrates with PeerGuardian2

    No, don't do this. Tell ZEN to ask the complainant for EXACT evidence.
    I know that Zen routinely do this, and they never hear back from the
    litigant making the complaint.

    Edonkey is a completely legitimate piece of software. If people wish to
    use it for copyright infringement purposes, then that's their lookout,
    however you shouldn't be forced to remove ANY software from your own PC
    without a court order. (and even then it's debatable..)

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Take off Edonkey.. and install Emule Plus instead.. use the "tools" provided to
    prevent IP from seeing you.
