    Was kann ich beweisen, dass eine andere Person verwendet meine Verbindung , um Filme auf Popcorn Zeit zu beobachten ? Werde ich noch sah für ihre Handlungen verantwortlich ?
    Die genannten Freunden verwendet Popcorn Zeit , um verschiedene TV-Serie zu sehen. Ein Brief von Waldorf.Frommer kommt fast jede Woche . Heißt das, dass ich die verlangten , sie alle zu bezahlen? Muss ich warten, bis alle Buchstaben vor der Umsetzung gekommen? Ich bin wirklich verwirrt und gestresst. Meine Freunde sind derzeit in Großbritannien , und ich weiß nicht genau, wo sie sind. Ich kann wirklich nicht leisten können, zu zahlen , da ich kein Geld haben . Werde ich vor Gericht dafür getroffen werden?
    Wenn ja, wie viel ist Ihre Gebühr für die Darstellung ?
    Es tut mir leid für alle Fragen, aber sein , weil ich leide nach , was andere getan haben.
