I’ve heard people aks if there catch people who illegally download movies on torrent.
I have been inquisitive as well to really ascertain if it was true because they have talked about how dire the consequences of the action will be if caught.
Please, how true is this?
Well if it’s worth a consolation, It is NOT TRUE.
But seriously: yes, the media companies are always on the prowl, looking for people downloading their content illegally.
Your internet provider may even watch your traffic to see if you’re torrenting. The legal ramifications of doing so aren’t as heavy as they used to be in previous times. With that being said, but you may still get letters from your ISP, reduced browsing speed in most cases, or any other mild punishments.
There are ways to keep yourself anonymous in such situations, of course, but its fail-proof. Applications like PeerBlock claim to block your internet provider from seeing exactly what you are downloading, but they’re not very reliable, and you can still easily get caught when using PeerBlock.
So it snow left to you to decide whether you want to download from torrent or not.
I had a challenge with browsing speed using this reply. Is there no better solution?
