Hello,

reading about the topic I personally wondered about how people can use VPNs like ProtonVPN for torrenting which isn’t legal in some countries, without ProtonVPN and other providers getting in trouble.

Of course they don’t log and don’t have data about which user is accessing what so they can’t hand out data. But why don’t law enforcements force them to block specific traffic and thus hindering people from using it for pricacy?

    And torrents start seeding automatically so it’s only legal as long as you torrent files that aren’t copyrighted, right?

      Not necessarily, that should be configurable from within the torrent client.

      Even if you didn’t seed, if it’s copyrighted content, many places make it illegal to download it as well
