Guten Tag,
Dies ist eine Abmahnung wegen Ihres Verstoßes gegen §19a UrhG am 05-07-2014. Das Musikalbum "Killswitch Engage - Disarm The Descent" wurde von Ihrer IP 101.155.64.160 gegen 01:13:41 runtergeladen. Dies verstößt gegen § 19a UrhG und muss zum zuständigen Amtsgericht Zivilgericht weitergeleitet werden. Nur die schnellstmögliche Überweisung eins Strafbetrags von 393.99 Euro kann dies abwenden. Wir erwarten den Zahlungseingang innerhalb der nächsten 48 Stunden. Details finden Sie im angehängten Dokument aafa496b799c.zip
