Maybe you heard about it maybe you didn't but we (Swedes) got ourselves a new law called IPRED which basiclly means that the media companies can easily find out who is filesharing behind an IPadress from our ISPs.
Being afraid of getting caught i started reading about Usenet and I must say that it seems like a really wonderful way to keep filesharing. People say its a lot more secure than torrents and some people say that you can just as easily get caught with Usenet. Anyway Im really turned into the idea of starting to use Usenet and leave the torrent days behind me but I still got some questions.
I get my internet connection through my college so I guess that my ISP is my school. In order to use the internet connection I had to state my MAC adress to the providers so that the only computers who can access my connection are the computers with my MAC adress (basiclly only my computer I guess?). Will I be able to fileshare through Usenet with this kind of connection and am I more "vulnerable" with this kind of connection considering the IPRED law?
I dont know maybe I'm just paranoid but Im basiclly wondering how safe am I with Usenet. Can I just go ahead and download like I used to or do I maybe get a VPN connection together with Usenet to be more "hidden" or something like that?
PS: Sorry if the spelling is wrong somewhere, like I said Im a swede so English isn't my first language.
