A local pirate warns (via email-he must have 3G on his ship):
So I got a notice from Surewest that they had detected that I downloaded, specifically, Game of Thrones over bit torrent and they advised that they would monitor for copyright infringement and would terminate service for anyone that is caught abusing the service in perpetuating copyright infringement. Just an FYI. I don’t know what makes GoT special as opposed to all the other shows, but just be careful. No more pay channel torrents for me.
The other local angle to this is that Ashwin Navin, a co-founder of BitTorrent Inc., is totally from Sacramento.
