It's times like these I'm thankful for my firewall. Although it's only the free Zonalarm one so I don't get the details of who's trying to get in... :(

The question is, what were you doing that made Skywalker Sound want to get into your computer?

Watch my Star Wars II DVD that I just got? Played some Jedi Outcast Multiplayer?

That's pretty scary. I hope they don't do it to me, I don't have a firewall.

PS:I don't have any illeagally downloaded star wars stuff, just the thought of that is scary.

Illegal Star Wars stuff, eh? *Runs and deletes the 3 Star Wars songs he downloaded* That should work... :(

Most of my stuff is pirated, but it doesn't exactly matter because I'm not sharing it, and I have the original copy of everyhting I download, except maybe porn...or hentai >.>

How do they know it's illegal?????

If all they are doing is trying to access your PC whilst you are viewing a DVD, probably through the InterActive DVD player on the disc, they can not tell if you have illegal material or not.

It's more likely than not it's a search, when your connected to their DVD's extra's site to see your usage stats on the DVD player when watching SW DVD's....

Making digital copies of material you have purchased is not illegal, if it is intended to be played in the house you dwell in (Aust. Copyright Law - paraphrased). In that vein, if they find files that are on a form of LucasFilm merchandise that they have released, you are not breaking the law. They do not know what you are doing with it, copying is legal, distribution is not.

Don't be scared of what you think they can charge you for, and what they can actually do.....

In this case, posession isn't illegal, it's how you got it. You have to be caught distributing (sharing) to be breaking copyright law....
