  • How to avoid copyright infringement notices

    Hello,


    I am d/l some torrents of a popular tv show. I am D/L the dubbed version in Spanish, so I guess that tracker is not private.


    I have already received a couple of copyright infringement notices from my ISP, I guess via the tracker and/or copyright holder.


    Will using a VPN solve this issue? Or what else can I do to D/L safely?


    thanks

    A VPN would certainly help, you will need one that keeps 0 logs, has a kill switch, and owns their own server, But I may suggest if you already have gotten a couple from isp, that maybe you may want to stop.

      Using a seedbox would do the trick. Also using private trackers will solve your problem as well.

        VPN and or Seedbox or for best measure both. A lot of seedbox providers nowadays bundle VPN (with the seedbox IP) in the package. Having said that how secure the provided VPN, logs kept etc you'll have to find out on "per provider" basis as not all of them are same.

        Seedbox will let you keep ratio in good order easier (for trackers that have ratio rules) but it will also cost more (in most cases).

        VPN is cheaper (again in most cases) and allows you to download files directly to your PC albeit nowadays that point is moot for most people as seedbox will most likely have the file downloaded in a few seconds (depending on peer+seed numbers and speeds).

        P.S. I'd go with a seedbox since downloading file from there to your PC will most likely be done through SFTP which is encrypted anyhow.

        P.P.S. Also there's Usenet which might be a choice too.. ;)

          "Private" trackers, contrary to what the name suggest, are not private by any means. A law enforcement employee can easily gain access to them, just as you and I have. The key here is to keep your own IP, which is tied to your real identify, as far away from any illegal torrent swarm as possible. As suggested, this can be achieved by using a anonymity-focused VPN and/or seedbox that does the initial swarm participation for you. You just need to make sure that the VPN/seedbox provider doesn't log ANYTHING that can lead back to you.

          And btw, do not, I repeat, DO NOT use Tor to torrent. Even if it worked properly, which it doesn't with most clients, the internet would hate you for overloading their favorite anonymization/democracy-enabling service. While you're busy downloading porn, whistleblowers in Iran's nuclear program won't get through to the UN. Thanks for destroying the world.
