First, I would contact Comcast Security and verify it is legit. The Comcast Security direct number is 888-565-4329. This was given to me by a security agent I spoke to regarding another security issue I had. Several things jump out at me and make me suspicious. I would think something of that magnitude they would notify you by USPS certified mail to make sure you receive the notice. Call them directly. Another thing, to my knowledge, I never knew Comcast had offices at that address given. Their corporate headquarters are in Philadelphia.

Re: Notice of Claim of Copyright Infringement.

It's just what it says it is. Comcast is letting you know that the copyright holder claims you downloaded their property. It looks like music downloaded via Bit Torrent.

 

DMCA Title II, the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act ("OCILLA"), creates a safe harbor for online service providers (OSPs, including ISPs) against copyright infringement liability, provided they meet specific requirements. They aren't accusing you of anything, just telling you that someone has notified Comcast that you infringed on their rights. By doing this, they can't be sued by the copyright holder.

If you are 100% sure you or someone in your household didn't download the item, then you'll want to double check that your network is secure and that none of the machines on your network are compromised. Change your network passwords, run multiple malware programs, do a deep scan and or a boot time scan with your anti-virus etc.

Getting legal advice from a cable guy on the internet is probably not in your best interest, if you are deeply concerned about the legal ramifications, you should contact an attorney. This is not legal advice, just information. With that said:

Most ppl simply ignore the notices. It's extremely unlikely that the copyright holder will take any legal action whatsoever.

You can file a counter notification with Comcast's designated agent if you so choose:

J. Opperman & M. Moleski/DMCA Notifications
Comcast Cable Communications, LLC
1800 Bishops Gate Drive
Mount Laurel, NJ 08054 U.S.A.
Phone: 888.565.4329
Fax: 856.324.2940
Email: dmca@comcast.net

All counter notifications must satisfy the requirements of Section 512(g)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. (See this letter)

Re: Notice of Claim of Copyright Infringement.

My concern here is why do they send something that can have legal ramifications by email. How can they prove you got the email? Just because it arrived at your email box doesn't mean you read it. Second that leaves open the door to a lot of scammers abusing that kind of letter to obtain information. To layman me it just doesn't make any logical common sense or legal sense to me.

Legal documents are not issued via e-mail. Nerd said "most people ignore it". That's what I would do.

That is my point exactly. Legal documents are never delivered via email. I think it is more of a scare tactic then anything else. I think they would be hard pressed to have it stand up in court.
