    Does using a seedbox provide seeders/leechers a layer of self-protection against Anti-P2P groups, by making it more difficult for such groups to find out who you are and what you're doing (illegally, for example)...or not really?

    Do they just send threatening letters to the seedbox provider insisting that they provide them with your paypal user info, as opposed to sending the same threatening letters to your ISP insisting that they be provided with your IP address?

    If this is the case, does anyone know of any cleaver ways that one could go about paying for their seedbox that would limit the capabilities of Anti-P2P groups to track you down??

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

    Don't use any public trackers. That's the best thing you can possibly do.

    Get a leaseweb server and dont give ur correct info.
    Or get from a reseller and then u dont have to give any info.

    That obviously does make a lot of sense, but I would think it's unlikely that no one has never received a threatening letter from one of the anti-P2P groups for his/her activities on a private tracker. I'm sure it happens far far less often, but I'd bet it still happens...

    Having said that, does downloading from a private tracker (and only from private trackers) to my seedbox, and then downloading from the seedbox to my local machine provide any extra security that simply downloading directly to your own machine?

    Is your suggestion something that is only possible via leaseweb, and not other seedbox providers?

    How does a person make a payment for something like this without providing their correct info?

    of course that if they want they can track you. after all, the host company just has to spill out which IP's you used to access the seedbox....

    Does anyone know of any cases in which an Anti-P2P group has busted someone who had downloaded from a private tracker from a seedbox?

    I wonder if this has ever happened, or if they'd rather not waste their time, and instead focus on busting TPB & Mininova users??
