If your using peerguardian 2 then make sure you add your own lists and sources. I dont think that the built in ones are updated anymore.

Although I use torrents as my main downloading medium. It is very easy to find an ip of a downloader and track them if they are downloading illegal/copywrited content.
The only real way around this is using a VPN which tunnels your connection through another network, so nobody can see WHAT you are browsing/downloading but can see that you are using high bandwidth.
BUT VPN services cost money and private torrent sites do not like them as they cannot track your downloads through them and therefore cannot give you a correct ratio.

Peerguardian 2 will help (I use it) but there will always be many ip's which are not on the lists.


NEWSGROUPS are now the only secure/private way of downloading files. I only wish I knew how to use them (can't find many decent guides). And I dont think newsgroup servers are free either which is a plus for using torrents.

PG2 offers no protection whatsoever now. Your ISP can easily see what you are downloading hence why thousands of letters have been issed by BT, VM etc to customers to refrain from downloads. Copyright law firms are now being actively instructed to request IP addresses from ISPs of illegal downloads.

Davenport Lyons recently got 15000 IP addresses from VM I believe and sent out £500 demand letters to the downloaders or face court action.

Definitely works for me as a few months ago a friend was round downloading without peer guardian and I got a letter through detailing exactly what he downloaded and when. I however have never had one from any of my abuses

was the letter from your ISP? There are thousands if not millions of people downloading illegally in the UK so its pot luck at the moment whether your ISP gives you a warning. I'm more concerned by the ISPs being forced to release customer details to law firms acting on behalf of the music / film industry.

£15 for 180GB of encrypted SSL full speed downloads could prove to be a good investment as far as I'm concerned ;-)

PG2 will never be able to shield what you download from your ISP.

would I be correct in saying that file hosting sites (rapidshare, megaupload etc) are safer, because its harder for the ISPs/industries to see what is being downloaded?

its impossible for them to see what is being downloaded :thumbsup:

VM have just started packet sniffing now to gather info on what all their customers are downloading but wont be able to unencrypt SSL data from astra, rapidshare etc

I think its the ISPs way of showing the devil incarnate Peter Mandelson that they are proactive in the fight against illegal downloading so that he may water down Clause 17 of the new Digital Economy Bill.

this is what i thought, and why i switched away from torrents. megaupload is great, and rapidshare too, although a pain if a free user
