Actually, it is very easy to use some of the circumventing methods. Considering this, the suggested PROTECT IP Act won’t be able to do anything to curb copyright violation. Of course, the new legislation will hamper free speech, it is also almost certainly unconstitutional and politically unsound. Besides, it will perhaps hurt small and medium business because of being anti-competitive, thus causing a lot of security headaches, but it won’t be able to stop copyright violation, at least not by a long shot and with such methods as described below to be helpful in bypassing the Internet censorship.

VPN Service

VPN service is a security tunnel protecting your information when it travels from your PC to the VPN server before letting the data out on to the web. If VPN service resides outside the US, it will be very difficult to stop people using such service to bypass DNS censorship.
This method has very good security benefits and in most cases is reliable. It features a lot of technical support to go around based on which VPN service is chosen. It allows to access almost everything on the web and is very good for privacy.

On the other hand, VPN service is not free and may include bandwidth allotments. Meanwhile, reliability of this service is not actually consistent for every particular VPN service. In some cases you may also need to install software you are not completely familiar with.
HOSTs File

In most instances, there’s a HOSTs file on your PC that can be used to connect domain name to server IP address without using a public DNS server. So, in case a site is censored through a DNS server, you can use the HOSTs file so that a public DNS server isn’t used at all. All you need to do is type in the domain name in URL, and the site would still appear.

The benefit of this method is that it completely removes the need to use a public DNS server to access certain sites. It also prevents links from breaking and allows you to have greater power over how you view the pages. Besides, it requires no installation or downloading of software. One of the side benefits is having an effective way of blocking online ads.

However, this method requires maintenance and sometimes not easy to find in the system. In addition, it may raise security issues on a LAN with multiple users.

No avatarwell at the end of the day your better of with a seedbox since VPN can be traced abck to you ect

dslbandit avatarGood paid VPN's can not be traced back to you if you use a service that resides outside your host country and one that does not retain user logs. The free alternatives can be traced back to you if they really want to, but unless you're threatening the president of your country or something else really stupid it won't happen. A seedbox service also gives you strong protection, but a top-notch paid VPN is your best bet because it covers ALL your activities. Suck it up and pay for one, you'll sleep much better.

No avatarwhy not use hide ip or free hotspot

dslbandit avatarIP cloaking software is fine for web surfing, but won't mask your torrents. They will only handle HTTP. You can manually configure a free proxy in your torrent client that will mask your downloads, but the speeds will suck. Take it like a man and pay for a seedbox or VPN. There's a reason we're ALL recommending it.

HideMyAss and BTGuard are really good. BTGuard is especially geared towards P2P anonymity.

The hosts file in Linux is at /etc/hosts. I also highly recommend you guys setup an IP Blocker, on Windows you can use Peerblock and on Linux you can use MoBloquer or IPBlock. Please don't forget to enable encryption & port randomization in your BitTorrent client.
