Homeowners in Gedling borough who illegally stream films and television shows could get warning letters from their internet providers this week.

Customers of Virgin Media, BT, TalkTalk and Sky will be the first to receive the letters, which will be sent as part of a new pirating crackdown by the government.

The letters will this week land on the doorsteps of ISP customers thought to have downloaded copyrighted material without proper subscriptions.

The BBC has seen a sample letter, which they say will be headed with the customer’s telephone number.

It reads: “Get It Right from a Genuine Site’ has got in touch with us.

“Get it Right is a government-backed campaign acting for copyright owners who think their content’s been shared without their permission.

“It looks like someone has been using your broadband to share copyrighted material (that means things like music, films, sport or books).

“And as your broadband provider, we have to let you know when this happens.”

It then provides a list of the content in question and directs users to a website with “tips and advice on how to stop it happening again”.

The letters won’t fine customers who are targeted.

Instead, they will suggest other ways to watch the programmes legally.
