If you’re brutally trying to pirate movies on Starlink, SpaceX’s satellite internet service, brace yourself for a warning from the company asking you to quit. A Starlink customer was interested to know if SpaceX is enforcing its regulations against downloading copyrighted content and the answer is yes. The subscriber, “substrate-97,” posted the piracy warning he received from SpaceX this weekend on Reddit. The warning message stated that the company insists that its subscribers do not download illegal or copyrighted content using the Starlink service. The warning message further detailed that downloading copyrighted content without a license may result in suspension or even termination of the service and also result in legal action by the owner of the original content.
While it’s not exactly difficult to get around an ISP’s monitoring, piracy should be discouraged at all costs. Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) can prevent an ISP from monitoring internet traffic as it encrypts the connection. So a Starlink subscriber can still download illegal content on the service
SpaceX’s Starlink uses more than 1,300 satellites in orbit, but the Internet comes from the ground stations integrated into local fiber optic networks.
The subscriber named, Substrate-97 is located in the US and was not quick to respond to inquiries from pcmag.com. But on the Reddit platform, the subscriber stated that they deliberately used the file sharing service, torrent on Starlink, to see what could happen. The subscriber stated that he has been torrenting since they subscribed to the Starlink service two months ago.
The company’s warning message also mentioned that Starlink is trying to curb piracy, just like other conventional internet service providers.
If the ISP recognizes a download for a copyrighted movie, the provider can automatically issue a warning to the subscriber committing the violation.
