I've already had this happen with my cable internet provider.

They shut off my service and claimed that I had an illegal pirated software title. As a professional who uses his machine for business, I assure you I do not pirate software. the "pirated software" The fully legally purchased copy of MS Office, which I had made a backup copy of. I told them that they needed to restore my service immediately, and that they had lost my business. They violated my machine, as that software was not shared. I had movies, music, and a few other random bits that they "flagged" but were also legitimate.
