1st of July 2012 is when the largest effort of the US to fight piracy – the six-strike regime – will start. The system represents the collaboration between the largest country’s Internet service providers and the entertainment industry, represented by the MPAA and RIAA.
The list of participating ISPs includes Time Warner Cable, Comcast, AT&T, Cablevision, and Verizon. The 6-strike system mainly focuses on copyrighted content located on BitTorrent networks.
However, there’s something that raises not just morality questions, but also the legal ones. The matter is that the entertainment industry in cooperation with ISPs is planning to be the judge of all digital material without letting anyone to check on them.
In addition, they believe that the BitTorrent network is facilitating the infringement of copyrighted content, which seems to be one of the most ridiculous ideas to many. However, instead of pinning every drawback of the graduated response regime, we may offer you four convenient ways to circumvent it.
1. VPN services. When the entertainment industry is scanning open P2P networks, your IP address is both vulnerable and easy to track. You can mask your IP address by subscribing to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) – this will hide your real IP from all public view. Moreover, VPNs don’t keep logs, so there won’t be any trail to track.
2. Proxy services. They are quite similar to VPNs, but they do not re-route online traffic through a number of remote servers, which simply hide specific programs and protocols.
3. Seedbox services. In case you want to be 100% secure, check out a seedbox, which provides anonymity by downloading torrent files to some remote machine not attached to your IP address. When the download is ready, the content will be transferred to the user’s PC without BitTorrent’s involvement. Such seedboxes offer fast connection speeds.
4. Private networks. As it was said above, the entertainment industry will scan open P2P networks, including servicers like The Pirate Bay. However, aside from open networks, you can also find private trackers staying under the radar and keeping you safe.
Other alternatives include obsolete utilities like the Internet relay chat (IRC), Usenet, Freenet Project, and digital storage lockers.

|well my isp is not in the list LoL. but any way id like to see them get this to stick. I just looked at a new fbi warning and it even states that regardless of profit you are not allowed to do with movies that you buy as you please. by answer to that is what ever, I will never buy another movie then. they just need to stop acting like dictators and just deal with the fact that they can not get as rich as they would like. but her is another thing folks, if they can target bit-torrent then they can target even IRC, Usenet, Freenet, cyber lockers, or anything else. all they got to do is decrypt the connection. but what they cant do is pin it on a specific some one and that's y they are pissed. I can see the US internet failing after july 1st with in a year or less if this crap happens.|

|Xirvik and Feralhosting are both decent seedbox companies. If you are allowed 6 strikes, maybe wait until you get 4 before buying. You'll save some money. And, get the hell away from these public sites to download.|

|Bigcow, I was wondering the same thing. I have a feeling the answer will be no.|
|Sorry for being ignorant but can someone just clarify something for me. If I get a VPN and log on through the VPN and then come to Extratorrent and download movies, I am protected from the MPAA tracking my actual IP right? If that is the case surely those idiots know that most people are going to circumvent their pathetic attempt? By the way, is there any significant difference downloading in terms of speed through a VPN as opposed to downloading directly?|
|I have time warner when july 1st come what will happen if I download something via bittorrent off websites like pirate bay or isohunt.come or extratorrent.com? Will I be prosecuted|

|All VPN's do not support torrenting, so you need to check it up while you are getting one. Downloading speeds may be limited so check that too, but popular ones offer good speeds.|
Peerblock is not 100% safe, cannot solely depend on it,doesnt hide your ip,it just blocks known Anti Piracy IP's from connecting to you. The list is updated by ppl so there are always chances of all the IPs not being included.
Before you pay up, do your research, search the forums, google or whereever you can find info.

|" get the hell away from these public sites to download. "|
Ok heard of private sites but never been to one; since he didn t answer his own question here very weird i ll ask; how do i find a private torrent site to stay safe; why not stick with private . .
|Do these people have any idea how many people get their media (movies,music,ect.) through torrent files? Do they really expect ISPs to cut internet access to those who refuse to comply? That would result in huge losses for ALL ISPs. Our courts would be over-run with bullsh!t lawsuits. Lawsuits in which the defendant would always lose and then be ordered to pay unreasonable amounts of restitution which we'd just stiff their asses for anyway.|
Is this really where our attention needs to be focused??? Let's just forget about the pending war on Iran for a second. For f*ck sake, there was a naked guy hopped up on 'bath salts' eating a homeless guy's face off last week!!! Shouldn't we be getting that sh*t off the streets and out of people's hands. Who gives a rat's ass about someone downloading 'Hunger Games', especially after it's made millions upon millions of dollars. There are real hunger games going on out there (see above). This country's priorities are all kinds of f*cked up.
Also, you can try to hide from these greedy bastards all day long, using whatever method you 'think' works. They have bottom-less pockets and have surely hired highly qualified individuals to track all of us down.
Sorry bout all of that brothers; I just had to vent a little.

|Bunch of BS! They already try this method several times in the past and it never works. If I buy a CD, DVD and want to give it away or trade it, that's my business. If anyone with a little intelligent should be able to get around this crap.|

|By the way, let's not forget one of the oldest protocols (The FTP protocols) we use to use during the 80's to trade stuff way before torrents and rapidshare.|
You really think the ISPs wanna lose a $100 a month paying customer? Get real!
Personally, I'm not even worried, I've a Linux Box and I can easily get around using my real IP address.

|if vpns keep us safe then how can we get busted still don t get that; how can a real ip addy get read ? ?|
|Can anyone actually give me a recomendation on the best VPN to sign up for in order to make sure the parasites at the MPAA don't come calling? I do have to agree that it really makes no sense for the internet providers to co-operate with the MPAA because they will lose a lot of money by doing so..........I mean what do they have to gain from doing the bidding of these people unless they are themselves under the threat of a suit from them.|

|VPN's keep you safe becoz they allot you a different IP when u use any VPN service, and they never save any logs(as claimed by many), so even if some1 comes hunting for that specific alloted IP, ur VPN service provider wont have any info to provide, on who was using it at that specific time.|
Only scenario where u get busted while using VPN/Seedbox and proxies is if they turn ur details over.
And also your connection needs to be encrypted between ur vpn/seedbox/proxy, otherwise ur ISP can still snoop on what you downloading!

|@Rockman, Of course nothing is 100% bullet proof! But with a little common sense and learning the basic of computer Protocols, you should be able to get around most stuff. This stuff don't apply to computer geeks pros or intelligent Linux users. Get a Linux Box and learn about TCP/IP Protocols and Layer 2 Virtual Private Network Services (L2VPNS) and 3.8 Virtual Layer 3 Switches|

Ok whats that all about and how do you encrypt between your vpn/seedbox/proxy so you don t get busted ?

Most VPN have special setup software to 256-bit encrypted your torrents, emails and other downloads. So do your homework and research and find which one that suits you. Just like someone mention above.

|Here's a break-down:|
Unlike a torrent proxy, which only secures your torrent client, VPN (Virtual Private Network) encrypted tunnelling encrypts all your internet access, effectively replacing your local ISP routing 100% for all applications with all the benefits associated with the VPN server (i.e. security, speed, geographic location etc). A VPN can easily be connected or disconnected with just a click of the mouse. This protects your torrent downloads, web browsing, email and any other third party applications that connect to the web.
In conclusion, a torrent proxy protects your torrent traffic only; whereas VPN will work with all internet based services and applications routing everything through the secure connection

VPN is a good method, if you have a clue what you are doing. Seedbox is great! ease to use. If you go with a box MAKE SURE it supports sftp!! Private Trackers. mainly @ Rockman, their all I use. Right now you have to know someone on a private site or find one and buy in. They require a share back ratio or pay. Proxy. I won't give much detail bc I quit using proxy over 10 yrs ago.
pros, Harder to be tracked.
Cons, cost real $ to play, but it's pennies compared to what a trip to the movies would cost.
vpn, slower than ur normal connection 110% safe.
Seedbox, I can dl a 136 gb movie pack in about 4 hrs. but to get the file to my pc, it's long.. most boxes do not alow public torrents as for they dont want to be targeted next.
I just don't trust proxy as I used to hide behind them, and someone who knew a lot more than I spit out my real ip addy in middle of irc chat
since everyone always wants to know where to find these sites. here's the url www.google.com
key words "vpn" "seedbox" as for private trackers.. I only send my invites to the ppl I know who will seed back their actions refelect my account.. :p
Good luck to us all..from staying out of the gvt's radar.

|My ISP is on the list and I have ProXPN (VPN). Be advised that ProXPN allegedly protected me by not reporting me to Voxel.net, however, they cut off my U.S. connection and now I am forced to connect through the UK or the Netherlands. Both offer horrible ping times. Therefore, I have gone with Easy-Hide-IP (Proxy service in Spain). In MY opinion, none of these methods work. They've just been created to take our money! As far as Seedboxes go, you have to be a real "stay-at-home" or "disabled person" to need one. You also need to be very wealthy because the monthly charges are insane, IMO.|
