      @coipu - Banning VPNs is basically impossible as they are also used by many firms for contact with their employees. I suppose it is possible for an ISP to ban their use, say without a special license, but this would be difficult to administer.
      Well it is going to be interesting to say the least as I download music samples as I am a producer too and that is in the region of 20 to 30gb of data a pack but most a free licence and samples but am wondering how they are classing it as theirs all sorts of song artist names in it that are in charts or on mtv but their instrumentals sound samples like bass used in tracks and midi files to make own music from and vocals to make music with. Same for video editing and making videos can be just as bad when using content or used for short videos of own stuff.

      I did make enquirys to downloading via torrent and said this was not illegal just the content that is downloaded. With other problems I had found that some films had been downloaded but not off my computer or any devices as I had aksed why net was slow found out my router was on open network, so that I know is out of my control but soon got fixed.

      it is going to be interesting as I download music samples and other things as I produce. I had problems with net with open network that got fixed but found out some content was downloaded. Also forgot to ask what is the rules on streaming sites is this classed as downloading?

      Streaming is downloading, but it depends on what site its coming from whether it is legal or not. If the music samples you are downloading are not copyrighted or you have permission from the owner of the music, that is not illegal.

      The issue that the City of London Police are concerned with is Torrents and some sites which host illegal content that is then shared between people.

      Watching and streaming a video, for example, from UStream, DailMotion or YouTube, would not cause you any problems.

      Some 'Popcorn' sites do host material which is deemed illegal, so they might be on the watch list. This is purely because the site/s in question don't pay the owners any fees to allow people to watch the content when they are stll in their respective copyright periods.

      Ouch!

      Legally & ethically someone might suggest that you should deal with this in some manner, but I'm unsure how you might wish to progress.

      Personally you might wish to do some research to confirm the accuracy of the apparent information (don't admit or deny anything on here or anywhere else that is public). Of course their apparent 'fine' or 'compensation level' might persuad you to pay or not, but in fairness, any payment is an admittance of guilt in their eyes.
