Only way to prevent it is to find what computer or device is triggering the copyright notifications and stop it from transferring the copyrighted content. If you're not aware of any Peer-to-Peer/Torrent software, or "Free Movie/Music" download/streaming apps on any of your devices like Popcorn Time, then make sure your Wi-FI is secure.
