BayTSP, Inc. is a company that monitors trackers and torrents, recording ips on them...and sending Cease-and-Desist letters to the ISPs of those ip addresses demanding those ips stop running torrents. (...and threatening nasty legal action if the ips don't!)

On receiving such Cease-and-Desist letters, an ISP typically forwards the letter on to whoever had the ip address at the time in question.

NOTE: Almost NO ISP tells BayTSP, Inc. who the "owner" of the ip address is at the time. Most give at least that much lip service to "privacy", and also because it's remotely possible even the ISP is mistaken which customer was using which dynamic internet ip at any given moment.

It is generally a big mistake to reply back to such Cease-and-Desist letters, as it gives away your identity. Even if you're innocent, or someone else was using your connection via wireless, BayTSP may try to sue for big money. :(

At least stop running the torrents. ...if you are in fact running the torrents!

You might want to call your ISP for more details, especially if you have strong reason to believe the letter was sent by mistake to you or you don't know who/what caused your connection to seem like someone was downloading that torrent on it.

Some further "food for thought":
