VPNs May Become The Next Target Of The Music and Movie Industry [ bbc.co.uk]
Young people are increasingly turning to virtual private networks (VPNs) to anonymise their free sharing of music and movies, a new study has found. Sweden's Lund University found that there had been a 40% rise in the number of 15- to 25-year-olds using such services since 2009. Many believe that the clampdown on piracy is behind the popularity of such services. VPNs could become the next target for the content industry say experts.
Good luck on that...they can't legally spy on the traffic...so. engine
Yeah, that's going to be a tougher one to handle, but, as I understand it, you're not supposed to even put music files in your shared folder. johnhh
Oh - that would explain all the spam emails titled VPN for hackers that I am getting. Gibble

Isn't that a folder M$ shares by default? Yes, the shared folder on a PC. Either way, the copyright police are just driving people underground. J_RaD
they are wrecking the internet with this never ending witch hunt. Shaddows
What does that even mean; "VPNs could become the next target"? Like P2P, VPN has legitimate as well as nefarious applications. Unlike P2P, the vast majority of VPN users are in fact legitimate. From teleworkers, to branch offices, inter-company communications, VPNs are widely deployed. Sounds more like uninformed reporting more than an actual threat.
