Your server has incoming and outgoing cookies which are traced through an open port in your server. This automatically generates IP addresses that can then be acquired by people or organizations looking for illegal downloads. Downloading a song (or any type of media illegally), provides those who may want to catch you in the act, with a ready made fingerprint that leads directly back to you.
