    CAn an ISP monitor what you are downloading if it is through a P2P app such as Direct Connect (www.neo-modus.com)
    Can they check to see what names of files, sizes etc or do they just see a connection to the hub?
    Interesting as I have heard most ISP's are now going to pass on data to police for copyright thefts etc

    My ISP is blueyonder
    I spoke to them and they said certain things are passed directly through to the police - does this mean the police have installed a black box (filter) that forwards your IP, date etc if a certain keyword is looked/used.

    Cheers

    there are ways they can.... unless u are doing anything horrible they wont pass it on the the poliece, mabey at the most they will disconnect your service for good.

    yes it is possible, more of a pain to do it, but if they want they can.
    they can see what IP and DNS address yoru connecting to,.. and therefor see what your doing
