    Alongwith IP, your MAC address and DSLAM ISP port is also registered in the ISP session data, so doesn't matter whether it's a dynamic IP.But cyber crime laws in India haven't gone to the extent that somebody has been caught for using utorrent, if not some copyright owner of any digital media has prying eyes on you ! :)

    i have searched a lot and found that they send mail to you of warning through with the help of your isp not to download torrent but in india i haven't se any case of being caught..but if someone is watching yours activity then he is also breaking the law by seeing your privacy.....does peerblock block all anti p2p ????

    This is something new! So far no one had been caught in India for downloading from torrents. What is the warning message that you are receiving from Airtel? Most of the downloads from torrents are illegal, considering the content..its either pirated movies, music or porn. Post a screenshot if possible?

    Your dynamic ip cannot confuse them, that is a misunderstanding. The IP is assigned by the ISP (Airtel) themselves. When the IP is assigned to anyone, they have the full details of the client/customer to whom they are assigning the IP. If you remember, while applying for the connection, you might have filled the CAF - Customer Application Form.
    This contains all the details about you.

    And Yes, do you think Airtel has no time rather sneak peak into their customer browsing patterns? That warning message should probably be some virus!

    Once it happened to me, while I was browsing, the computer got locked, and the screeen filled with the message that I was watching porn and my activities have been noted, and I need to pay a fine! WTF! I was very sure that this was some kind of virus... Anyway, Avast solved the issue. Later came to know that its a new virus called PCeU virus!!

    So, chill. . . . do a virus scan and happy browsing!
