So I heard that you could use Proxy Servers for this. Has anyone ever used them before? If so, this doesn't screw up your computer in any way does it? Help is appreciated..
What do you exactly mean by that?
I thought that this might put me in a bit of a situation. But I don't really know about how serious it is. I'm pretty bad with these sort of things, which is the reason why I posted this in the first place.
An ISP won't do anything! No way no how...there is nothing wrong with using a proxy server at all!!!
It's not illegal.......yet. Most likely will be down the line though, as the government is going to have no choice. There has to be a way to make people accountable for their actions. Pedophiles, online gambling, etc, etc, etc. Won't surprise me at all to see some major changes on the net in the future.
Proxy's won't be illegal..they are perfectly fine to use and the fact is its more secure then using your nomal internet providers servers.
Most businesses, from large corporations to small businesses use proxy servers for security purposes. It would be impossible to "police" the internet in a way that would allow some proxies while making others illegal. The costs and legislation involved would be insurmountable.
The Internet is globals and free; the United States could not regulate proxy servers without severely crippling Information Technology in general.
People are so freaked out of proxy servers its hilarious...its not illegal at all!!
