Conceal Your Identity from Spying Eyes

Download Peer Guardian from here

If you use bittorrents, eDonkey, WinMX, Gnutella, Limewire, or any other P2P network, then you are likely being scanned by investigators. In an effort to trap and prosecute people for abusing copyrighted movies and music, investigators often pose as P2P downloader's. While they themselves share and download copyrighted files, these "posers" also scan and log your IP (internet protocol) address. Your computer IP address then becomes ammunition for civil lawsuits, where you may be sued for copyright infringement.

These investigator "posers" are everywhere. Their efforts will sometimes result in wholesale lawsuits, where hundreds of downloader's are charged thousands of dollars in copyright fines. Investigating posers comprise up to 3% of all P2P downloader's

you may be sharing files with.

In this war over digital freedoms, there are a couple of options for concealing your identity from these prying eyes.

Concealment Option 1: You can install an anonymizing proxy network service, like Anonymizer.com, The Cloak, or A4. There is even a special anonymizer dedicated to P2P networking: Mute.

Concealment Option 2: You can install a masking software product, like Peer Guardian firewall. Using either a proxy or a masking solution, or both in conjunction, will help hide you from being tracked by investigators or anyone trying to observe your downloading habits. The concealment is not 100%, but it is as private as you can get as a public user of the Web.

How Peer Guardian Firewall works:

Note: while Peer Guardian does work with Windows XP, 2000, ME and 98, it does not yet work with Windows Vista. A Windows Vista version of PG will hopefully be available by mid-March of 2007.

Peer Guardian maintains a centralized database of all the common investigator entities: RIAA, MPAA, MediaForce, MediaDefender, BaySTP, Ranger, OverPeer, NetPD and others.

Peer Guardian monitors these investigators' IP addresses by using sophisticated tracking devices. The investigators' digital addresses are then compiled into a centralized "blacklist" that is updated hourly.

Peer Guardian then gives away free "firewall" software to users. This software constantly checks the centralized blacklist, and then blocks your IP address from being seen by those investigator IP addresses.

You install the free Peer Guardian firewall software on your PC, and it will deflect over 99% of the investigators away from your machine. You will be rendered effectively invisible to anyone on the Peer Guardian blacklist.

PeerGuardian firewall software is compatible with all the major file sharing applications, such as Kazaa, iMesh, LimeWire, eMule, Grokster, DC++, Shareaza, Azureus, BitLord, ABC, and others.

As part of the grassroots push to maintain Internet freedoms and anonymity, the Peer Guardian software designers have armed downloader's with a very powerful defense here.

Where you can get Peer Guardian Firewall Software:

Peer Guardian is manufactured by Phoenix Labs (formerly Meth Labs).

Try Peer Guardian for yourself, and see how thousands of Internet users are protecting their anonymity.

Important Technical and Legal Notes: no masking of your address is 100% foolproof. At the same time, remember that in any other country outside of Canada, downloading copyrighted movies and songs puts you at legal risk for copyright infringement prosecution. Hundreds of users in the USA and UK have been fined by the MPAA and RIAA for downloading files in the last three years. Only in Canada is P2P file sharing tolerated legally, and only then, under specific circumstances.

Furthermore, while the About Network does promote freedom of expression and the democratic use of the Internet, the About Network does not condone nor promote the illegal downloading of copyrighted files. If you are going to participate in P2P file sharing, please take the time to educate yourself about the legalities and consequences of such activity
