Lots of people have received similar emails from Rogers. In general, they're just passing the message along, nothing to worry about.

Yup. Notice all they ever mention are United States and California laws, which are not enforceable in Canada.

Let's hope the new copyright law thing for Canada does not ever get passed.

maybe by replying you're admitting to guilt, ignore it.

Read it carefully. Then continue doing whatever it is you're doing... it's a scare tactic. Cheaper and more effective against the avg user.

Probably pressure from RIAA, they are by law required to give notice as ISPs.
