My phone's fucked, but it's still under warranty. I have music not from a reputable media vendor on my phone including a torrent app and the torrents themselves. Is it wise to send it off?

What do you mean "fucked"? Is it something that somehow could have been caused by torrenting? Or did you just leave in your back pocket when you were drunk? If it's the second thing I can't conceive of what the issue could be.

I've never had a problem and have even had engineers copy pirated music and film over to a USB for me. If they busted people for having pirated music we would all be in prison by now.

Why do you even have a torrent app on your phone anyway, is it not a bit unwieldy?

You'd only have a problem if it was CP. I'm sure pretty much everyone bootlegs. I doubt all those engineers dropped hundreds on legit Office, Photoshop etc.

They really won't care about pirated crap.

I sent my bugged Seagate drive off to The Netherlands for repair, chock full of torrented TV shows, films and music. Got it back in a couple of weeks, seemingly untouched, not a word about the contents. I imagine the engies don't give a toss.

I read a "share secrets from your workplace" thread someplace and someone who fixed computers said they routinely snooped through people's HD's and copied anything they liked for their personal use. That's quite predictable really.

Yeah I've no way of knowing if the engineers actually did look through my stuff but if they copied my TV shows for themselves then good luck to them, I don't care.

Granted if I had the time on the job to go dicking around through every customer's media collection I'd question what the hell I was doing with my life, but that's neither here nor there.

I remember taking a PC back to the place that built it and finding a whole bunch of stuff I'd downloaded in the MRU lists of programs I personally didn't use to open them (e.g. videos in Winamp).

What about porno that could be misconstrued as something rather less appreciable?

I've even had a techie in a computer repair shop ask if he could copy all the seasons of South Park I had when I took my first PC in to have the exploded power pack replaced. He also pinched all my laboriously labeled discogs of classic and prog rock.

If I ever met an engineer who gave an active fuck about piracy I'd eat my hat.
