We get regular complaints from Warner Brothers. If you use UK TV Access to download from a torrent you will be banned, we will hand over logs and all the other legal VPN users will curse you if the server gets shut down.

VPNs provide limited anonymity. But there are still activity logs that can build a picture of your activities. If you are going to steal, do it from a shop, please.

That off my chest!

Re: 25 sites blocked in the UK

Yes I often wonder with the likes of VM publishing lists, are they just being helpful, or are they merely performing a legal obligation to inform people of who they block, maybe a tricky one that.

But they have come in very handy in the past when I thought a site had actually closed down, only to find it's still out there somewhere, and with the minimum of effort doesn't take much to find it.

Now I just need to find out how to get my 'Bit Che' search program to activate through TOR and I'll be a really happy bunny.

Bit Che is a search engine that searches it's massive database for whatever torrent you are looking for, both private and public trackers are on the database and you can also enter your login details for any of the private sites and it will search those for you also.

And god forbid should anyone look for the cracked version when just for a few buck donation you can get it with all the extras which are also worthwhile for the serial searchers out there.

Is that VPNs or your VPN?

Sorry Neil but if you are running a VPN service and keeping logs then shame on you. I would certainly never recommend a VPN service that does so. As I am not a customer it has nothing to do with me I suppose, but...

http://torrentfreak.com/vpn-services...-2013-edition/

Obviously if the service you offer is just a way to watch Eastenders and all your customers are aware of that then fine, but If you are keeping logs and keen to hand them over to a third party, it goes against the grain, especially if those that use a VPN to bad mouth Arty and the AKP are among your customers.

http://www.lifehacker.co.uk/2012/09/...best-one-needs

If privacy is even just a part of why you use a VPN service, then it is essential to choose a logless VPN provider (and the more logless the better). While a certain amount of trust is required, a provider keeping no logs (together with using shared IPs) provides a very good degree of certainty that your internet activity is not being monitored.

https://www.bestvpn.com/blog/11536/5-best-logless-vpns/

There are certain expectations that people take for granted and presume to be, and I imagine a VPN by its nature should be private and secure and most people buying one expect and take for granted that it is inherent.

For instance "When asked whether ZenMate collects or logs any user data, Specka responded, “We don’t log anything at all "

Yes, put in your conditions that downloading torrents, porn and stuff are not allowed, as many do; how enforceable that is, is up to you, but the logs being retained is a different issue.

A provider could or may think it is advisable to keep limited logs and retain them for a short time, such as for customer support issues, but they should be wiped regularly, as in possibly hourly.

In fairness, I am aware that you are not alone in keeping logs, many others also keep them.

Bravo (hands clapping)

no logs, ever, if you announce anonimity. Then you can stay legal and turn over all your stuff to Fart, Barf and Itch (aka FBI) or MI5 or whomever and not be worried about violating the trust of your client base.

Re: 25 sites blocked in the UK

Quick word on using VPNs to access torrents. Running UKTV Access, we do get users who like to use the VPN to access copyright material. Here is a typical extract from a complaint received today:

Evidentiary Information:
Protocol: BITTORRENT
Infringed Work: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Infringing FileName: How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (2003)
Infringing FileSize: 750
Infringer\'s IP Address: 109.75.164.212
Infringer\'s Port: 63584
Initial Infringement Timestamp: 2015-03-03T13:06:09Z

I gave up sending warnings and banning users. Now I just hand over the server logs to this guy:

Adrian Leatherland
On behalf of IP-Echelon as an agent for Paramount
Address: 6715 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, 90028, United States
Email: [email protected]

Your port number and timestamp will identify you.

Given as these lawyers are paid per prosecution, if you are using UKTV Access to download torrents, you may get a summons at some point. It's written all over our web site, so no complaints about privacy, please - you are simply making me an accessory to a crime.

That said, isohunt is accessible in Turkey, so go there and save me a headache and yourself a court case.

Cheers

Neil

Re: 25 sites blocked in the UK

But why are you maintaining logs Neil? There is no legal requirement for you to do so and your other users will not be penalised for a single user.

Do you think programmes on BBC for instance are not copyrighted? Yes, the BBC and ITV have licences to broadcast but those licences were purchased with limitations. For ITV for example to buy worldwide rights to a featured movie or series the price would be astronomical, therefore they pay for UK rights only. Your VPN enables viewers to circumvent licences and helps to rob those with the original copyright such as film and TV companies. Morals can be a fine line when mixed with profit.

Seems to be a case of mixed morals to me, advertise to people to purchase your VPN so they can watch programmes they should not be watching but if someone uses a torrent to download a movie (from 2003) they shouldn't be downloading, suddenly you're an accessory to a crime.

Sorry Neil but I and many others see profiteering by offering something that circumvents something, then when they have paid, start preaching morals as in bad taste. At least turn a blinder so you at least have an excuse.

It is a copyright violation and a TOS violation when people are watching TV from another country. The fact the BBC don't enforce and chase people does not make it okay. I gather the BBC are working on an international version with reduced content, then people can watch without the any infringements.

Take the moral high ground and make sure all copyrighted material or material that was not licenced for viewing (downloading, as it has to download to be viewed) can't be watched then I can see your point, could not see a point for your VPN service though. Don't take the moral high ground, have mixed morals and don't keep logs. Simples really.

It's called UK TV Acccess. Shame on the people who get us threatened with closure every week. Every VPN provider keeps logs. These tell us the port, duration, bandwidth, log on and log off time. They don't tell the sites visited.

However, if the visited site has tracking (i.e. a 'planted' copyright document such as a movie, or another honeytrap site) then the user can be linked to the illegal activity.

So, there is anonynimity, but we don't offer protection for illegal activities and will cooperate with abuse requests.
