French have passed a new law requiring Internet service providers to cut off Internet access for repeat copyright infringers. Under the new ‘HADOPI’ legislation ISPs have to warn their customers twice that they are accused of infringing copyright. If both warnings are ignored, Internet access for that subscriber will be terminated for up to a year - and they’ll have to keep paying their ISP bill throughout this period too.

Why? So you can keep stealing and not get caught?

$10 bucks says your brother is playing a practical joke on you.
There is no way that you would get a hand delivered cease and desist letter from your ISP within 2 DAYS of you plugging in your brother's computer to your network.
That stuff takes at least a week or so to get processed, lawyers sign off on it, etc.
I'm pretty sure your brother is behind this whole thing. Check by calling up the ISP and asking them about the status of your account. Don't tell them about the letter, but tell them you are concerned about your open wireless router as you noticed some traffic going over your connection that wasn't yours. Etc....see if they say anything.

The whole thing sounds very fishy, the owner of the ISP coming around? THey are more likely to send an email (that is what my isp did when the Secret Service contacted them).
But regardless anything that happens from your connection to your ISP is YOUR problem regardless of who's computer you used at that moment. It is all logged.

Yet another reason why nobody's computers but mine get connected to my network without being checked out first. A real good friend of mine had a messed up situation happen because his wireless was unsecured. Someone within range of his wifi connected and used his internet connection to download child porn. It was traced back to my buddies house and that is the house that was raided. Eventually things were cleared up and my buddy was cleared of charges but not before it cost him his career and almost his marriage. The moral of the story, do not allow foreign computers access to your network under any circumstances regardless of whose they are.
