Re: Like to hear some feedback from parents

Can't be bothered to watch the video, but I've always taught the kids that downloading copyrighted content is wrong, even where not illegal (the Netherlands a few years ago).

When I received a €600 settlement offer for demonstrable downloading of a film, offending child paid out of their savings.

Yes, these enforcement companies are scum, but I would rather my child had taken the lesson to heart before the bill arrived. So maybe some additional messages aren't a bad thing.
