Can you get whacked for seeding?
« on: October 30, 2018, 01:44:07 PM »
I try to keep my client on to seed as much as I can, but I don't want to use a VPN all day. Can I get in trouble for seeding?

You can get 'whacked' for seeding, even for downloading (aka leeching), without VPN already, depending on your local laws; the popularity and the copyright situation of the torrent.

Well, if you are not using a VPN, then your IP address is visible, so of course, you will get in trouble for seeding ..
