Exactly, see it's a gray area... The ISP wants to provide privacy, but they don't want to condone illegal acts. So if an IP/MAC address gets flagged and reported then they talk to you. On a global scale the ISP doesn't give a rats ass about piracy, because they shouldn't have to be snooping around they aren't any lawn enforcement. But as I said earlier, you can't hide from them either.

Is there any ways of not getting "noticed" for download torrents?

I had encryption enabled in utorrent, but the tracker was the cause of this notice.
Yea, don't download illegal ****... Then you won't get a piracy notice. Pretty simple actually.

Now if the torrents were legal files, like a linux distro or a video podcast or something, then you should tell them to **** off.
