24. Get Smart

If you're surfing through your ISP you deserve to get busted for doing nothing more than sharing publicly available material. Don't get me wrong - anybody stealing proprietary material and using it for profit should be busted that is stealing. But only in America do we allow the rich to get richer with laws that make it illegal to share what is obviously publicly available material. There are no such laws in other countries, that is the reason you can buy a BluRay recorder in Japan and record any TV program you choose and mail it to your best friend without fear of going to jail. This once great country has been so brain washed and so screwed by the rich we take the loss of inalienable rights for granted. OK that's my political rant, here what I mean when I say you deserve to get busted if you are surfing thru your ISP. You ISP logs everything you do - every site you go to and every file you transfer is logged to your account. But you can easily bypass them by using a tunneling proxy service. Those services establish an encrypted tunnel that hides all of your activities while you are on line. I'll warn that not all proxy services do this, and I'll warn that not all of your activities (peer to peer file sharing Torrents) can be forced through the proxy service. Peer to peer type connections will automatically set up a separate connection outside of the proxy tunnel which your ISP will log. Also, many proxy services actually allow your ISP to log all of your requests before you ever get into their encrypted proxy tunnel. So you need to make yourself knowledgeable before you sign up. However, once setup you can surf as fast or faster through a proxy tunnel and in complete privacy. Except for the proxy provider himself, he will then have similar logs. But his logs will be minimal, in as much as he will not record the actual files you transfer, only the time and site location data, and many will destroy the data regularly. In fact he (the proxy provider) will have almost no ability to follow any of his clients surfing habits. He simple doesn't have the resources. In fact the only time he would ever even be aware you might be doing anything considered illegal would be when and if some law enforcement agency would hit him with a court ordered subpena to turnover his logs - and he would, as he should. But just stop and think how unlikely that would be. Unless you are doing something really bad, so bad the FBI or Secrete Service has tracked you down, nobody else will have a clue what you would are doing on line.
