letter template Letter to contest a sanction for illegal downloading Challenging the warning You have just received a letter stating that you have illegally downloaded content. If this is a pure and simple accusation, you have the right to contest it. This must be done according to a precise procedure and in order to put all the chances on your side. But first of all: -Make sure that this warning really comes from Hadopi. If you are asked for money in this first email, it is surely a pirate. -Download the Hadopi form and follow the steps. You will then know whether or not it is a transgression on your part. This is quite plausible, because your IP address could have been used by a hacker. Self-defenseIf your act is confirmed and you are in the wrong, the best thing to do is to gather all the elements that could later prove that it was not voluntary. -You can do nothing. If you are discreet, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to complete and build a case against you. -You can also ask by email for a description of your charge. But before doing so, make sure that your computer is not equipped with Torrent and that you do not have any of the incriminated files. To avoid getting caughtThe best solution is to pursue the Hadopi charges in order to avoid stress, loss of time and increased penalties. It is very important and even mandatory that you protect your computer before accessing the Internet by avoiding as much as possible leaving it to someone else without your consent.

Subject : Contestation after receiving a warning for illegal downloading

(Registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt)

Madam, Sir,

Following the warning letter that was sent to me on (date), in which you inform me that I have illegally downloaded web contents that are protected by copyright, I would like to contest your position.

I strongly invite you to raid my home to verify that I have implemented a means of securing my system and that I do not have any suspected and protected files.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that today it is very easy to falsify an IP address and to find free software on the Internet that allows to bypass the protection measures established by the subscriber without his knowledge. As a user, I can assure you that I stream all the contents in order to avoid this inconvenience.

Thanking you for your understanding and hoping to have solved this problem, please accept, Madam, Sir, the assurance of my best regards.
