Canada has the right idea. There's a law there that says what you download is your business alone. Not so in the USA. I downloaded something with uTorrent and someone bitched to my isp that they didn't like what I chose to down. Anyone can participate in a torrent download and get your IP and then complain if they want to. Is there a way to hide my IP while I download what I want? I've used proxy servers before in a browser to hide my IP on certain web pages. Unless I was really lucky, the process was always sssssllllllllllloooooooooowwwwwwwwww. I was hoping there was a speedy way to hide an IP while downing a torrent. A friend at work said he set up a second router to generate a false IP. I don't see how that's possible. Wouldn't whatever IP your isp has assigned you always show when you download stuff? Any advice on how to keep downloads private is appreciated.
