Pirate Bay's VPN goes public: Ipredator

Recommended Posts

As governments around the world consider proposals to hand surveillance powers to the entertainment industry and twitchy cops, the Pirate Bay is striking back. Its new €5/month IPRedator service is an encrypted VPN that you can use to hide your traffic (whatever it may contain) from prying eyes. The name comes from Sweden's adoption of IPRED (the "IP Rights Enforcement Directive," a punishing piece of anti-Internet legislation). I've been looking for a reliable VPN to use on public hotspots -- this might just be it.

 

Ipredator is currently using the same platform as several other VPN franchises including Relakks, which means it's not really anything we haven't seen before. The servers are maintained and provided by Pirate Bay affiliates though, which may be more trustworthy to the average BitTorrent user than a random VPN provider. That aside, we were told by former Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde that contrary to what the legal page states, no logs of any kind are kept by Ipredator. The text that is in there is a left over from the standard template they got from the provider of the VPN platform.

And, according to Sunde, there will soon be even more advantages and added security to Ipredator.

In fact, I just signed up. I'll let you know how it works out.

they dont go after drug users - they go after drug DEALERS

 

they don't go after illegal downloaders - they go after illegal download PROVIDERS

 

because it "cuts the head off the dragon". why put out the fires the dragon leaves behind?

 

does any of this make sense to any of you?

 

paranoid people. unless you're in the scene and not a scenester then it doesn't make sense to hide anything. they won't - THEY CAN'T - prosecute everybody.

I "preview" a lot of stuff and it's just a matter of using common sense. Certain sources are better/more secure than others.

 

The people who would benefit the most from a VPN usually have one already, and it's not one attached to a known quantity like TPB. Had this been available before the trial and all of the funny business surrounding the torrent site I'd be interested but TPB is way too hot to take chances with (although I still use BayIMG).

Im up to like 60 gigs worth of music in the past 6 months but I dont really seed it all. nsmbfan is right. They go after those that are providing the larger chunks not the ones DLing lil bits here and there.

 

They cant prosecute everyone.

That program used to be called Azereus and it sucks down RAM like it's a paying job. No thanks.

my friend just got a letter from at&t last month with a list of shit she downloaded .

it was more of a cease and desist but holy shit was it really worth it for them to do that over rainbow brite and true blood?

 

i tried to express her using proxies and a whole host of shit to hide herself but she said it was too much hassle and it wasn't even alot that was downloaded.

 

 

and if anything i told her to at least have some sort of outrageous porn seeding at all times to further mask but oh well

I got a letter in 2005 from Comcast saying that there was "suspicious traffic on my line" or something to that effect...nothing specific, though. I was running a p2p app more or less non stop back then, so I cut that out for a while and never heard about it after that.

A friend of mine actually had his Comcast account suspended for downloading V for Vendetta. What a shitty movie to lose your high speed over.
