HBO Getting Serious About Game Of Thrones Piracy

Remember a few years ago when one of the directors of Game of Thrones said he didn't mind when people pirated the show? I guess all of that has changed. HBO is now sending out copyright notices warning pirates of potential consequences for downloading or sharing the show.

"We have information leading us to believe that the IP address [address] was used to download or share Game of Thrones without authorization (additional details are listed below)," the notice states. "HBO owns the copyright or exclusive rights to Game of Thrones, and the unauthorized download or distribution constitutes copyright infringement."
