Your first notice was likely from your internet service provider (ISP) and a copy of a subpoena from a company called Strike 3 Holdings. Strike 3 is alleging that you (or someone in your home or office) illegally downloaded their pornographic films, typically using file-sharing software such as BitTorrent.
