Illegal downloads

I have been using BitLord for more than an year and I live in Hamburg, Germany. A few weeks ago I got a letter from a Law office in Munich who opened a case against me, saying that I should pay a fee of $1.600,00 Euro because it is illegal to download torrents in Germany.

I would like to ask you if you are aware of this law. Is it true? What is the position of BitLord in this case?

BitLord is a torrent client like any others. Its usage is free and you can do whatever you want with it, but you are the only one responsible for the content you're downloading. As far as I know, Germany is very restrictive when it comes to 3rd party content that you download. You should contact your ISP and ask information about them. Torrents are illegal if you download the copyrighted content.

If you read the BitLord ToS, you will see that you can't hold them responsible for the content you're downloading.
