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 ..

Depends on the country laws, but seeding is just as bad if not worse than downloading. Because you're not only taking stuff for yourself but giving numerous other users it as well.
