Hello all, not sure if this query belongs in this forum, but it was good place to start.  My brother-in-law got a notice via an email: see below.  He thinks it is due to his use of Stremio, but I'm not so sure.  Does anyone know anything about  Stremio service and it's legitimacy or if it would possibly cause this?  Or for that matter any ideas about this sort of thing.

That looks pretty clear to me. I don't know what was included in the email as to.....Copies of the DMCA notifications CenturyLink received are included below.


Downloading pirated software, movies, music is illegal. Whatever the source is such as the one you mentioned....Stremio...doesn't matter.
