Sorry for making another thread about this thing but I have one more question. My other thread everyone tell me to use proxy if I wanna download stuff. But does a proxy or VPN(They are the same right?) protect you from the RIAA or whatever they are called from knowing it's you.

btw: RIAA is the people that sue you and make you pay 2 million dollars for downloading 24 songs(if you know that story)

proxy != vpn. They will see right through the proxy, vpn would be significantly more secure as they would have to hack or have cooperation from the vpn service to find you. Many VPN's are also optimized for downloading.

Do you know any free VPN softwares? And they can't hack into your VPN right? If they do you can sue them?

Ok I have one more question can someone answer.

What if my friend downloads a game I want and sends it to me to my email and I download it from my email, will I still have a chance to get in trouble?

A chance of getting in trouble? Yes there is always a chance, but that chance is very very slim.

Like if they download and send to my email for me to download, how will anybody find out, if they even find out that means they are getting into my email looking at my private stuff. They can't do that, and how would they tell it is a game, they wouldn't have any suspicion because I'm downloading from my email.

Generally, if you are not uploading a shit ton of stuff...they won't come after you...Saying that, I have had a DMCA warning myself and I have prevented from getting more via vpn's and peerblock.

RomeoDakins,

Email is not secure or private. Any network admin from one of dozens of points online can see your email, if not encrypted. Furthermore, there are a dozen ways to get your ip, computer configuration, host name, city/state just by opening your email, or a document attached to it.

Food for thought.

So if I encrypt it(How do you encrypt?), AND download it with VPN it will be 100% safe?

Not sure if anything could ever be 100%.

Just google for different email encrypters, use a VPN, anonymous email boxes, community wifi... Even with all that, you are still never 100% safe, but you just have to consider the threat.

Each level of protection you give yourself, makes it that much less likely that anyone would put that level of effort into it, unless it was of dire importance.

Ok thanks! I'm going to try a VPN, do you know anything about OpenVPN, I'm trying to connect to vpn.vpnreactor.net, how do I do that?

When I want to be anon online, I open a vm, go to puiblic wifi and open a new hotmail account. I only access that account from open wifi spots using the vm.

I have never used a VPN, so no, I cannot offer any insight there. Sorry.
