I would like to put together a list of safety precautions users should take when downloading torrents in the US and other litigious countries.
I for example use encryption, use linux, try to only use private trackers, never watch from a machine connected to the internet. I've also tried using tor and similar proxy/anonymizers but they are just too slow.
Please post your recommendations.
ps i did a quick search on the topic and found nothing dedicated to safety. if i missed something please point me to the correct link and forego the flame.
