      My advice is do not be an O2 customer.

      I think it means, if you download Porn on o2 (illegally) and the court make an order, then o2 will then release your details.

      Mind you, if you are on Sky and then download Porn, (illegally) then Sky will also abide by the court order, once given.

      Exactly, but I bet if you don't use torrents you won't get a letter.

      So the logic in not being an O2 customer is ??????
