TOS Violation - DMCA Complaint


today I receive message from my internet provider:

We have received a complaint in connection with the below-pasted details from HBO regarding materials contained in the specified web site that are infringing upon the claimant's intellectual property rights.

We are required by federal law to act expeditiously in removing or disabling access to the infringing materials. We therefore strongly recommend that you immediately remove the infringing materials.

I dont know, what I exactly should do, because I like running Tor exit node.

My response to provider was in mind of "Tor client cannot act as server, so it is technically impossible to share bittorent thru Tor". This record above about sharing is probably from any bittorent tracker, because if any client will try to connect my server with bittorent protocol, it will fail.

I wrote to provider, that I stopped my Tor node until it will be clear, but I need any help from you, if there is any good practice.
