Heard of them, yes. It means you've been naughty and got caught.

No, owning the CD doesn't give you the right to download another copy illegally. If you own the CD, just rip the thing. If you want to steal music, be smart about it and don't use something that Cablevision can easily track you using.

Wow you must have went to an Ivy league school with that intelligence.

As said earlier its just a misunderstanding about the rights of what I can or can't do if I own the cds. Honest mistake. As suggested I will try to rip them.

But thanks again for a worthless post.

There used to be many companies that allowed individuals to download songs because the website was sponsored and paid for by those sponsors like BearShare. Now the rules are different. You can't do it any longer and cable and satellite companies will let you know that as a courtesy one time.
