Re: And P2P users will ramp up their VPNs
said by Wilsdom:Yeah, but most likely the VPN won't be in the USA (afterall, it's broadband speed customers need, not ~5ms ping times for gaming-- that comes after a successful download, lol).. the VPN companies will just have to be located in places where that is very, very unlikely AND have massive amounts of broadband.. Afterall, VPN servers aren't exactly public enemy #1 like BinLaden (yet)
The point is to route your traffic through a 3rd party, which owns the IP visible to the swarm. If that 3rd part is run by responsible human beings and no logs are kept nothing you do online is traceable to your computer. The weak point is when the thugs with guns land their helicopters at the VPN's data center and steal its machines. But by then we are really at the point of politics by other means.
Hmm.. are there many of those?!? Sweden USED to be a VPN haven.. not so sure these days.. with most of the target guns pointed at TPB (sweden).. and all torrent things Europe at the moment..

Everything and everyone has a price. The VPN services know what their connections are being used for. Don't think for a second that they won't become **AA lackeys for the sufficiently large enough price.
