So I got my first copyright notice from my ISP today, and it warned this was my second infraction. Checked and saw two other emails I never noticed from them. So now I think it's about time I get on a VPN, as the peer blocker I've been using till now seems worthless.
Can you guys recommend any? I've tried tunnel bear and hide.me with their free versions and thought hide.me was pretty decent and it allows torrenting. Can you guys recommend any others that wont break the bank, or steal/sell my info?

I have used Airvpn for this purpose, and have found that it works well. Torrenting while on Windows slows down to a crawl for some reason. Fortunately, I don't do most of it on Windows so that's no issue. Just a heads up as you may run into this with other services. Many give free trials limited by time/data so you could try a few out. Seems you already have. Mullvad, nordvpn are some others I know of. Go with whatever is cheaper I guess.

define break the bank.

The one TT recommends/advertises would be my recommendation, ~40 USD for a year for their services.
Probably less than what you pay each month for internet if you are in the united states.

OP here. sorry for the late reply but I ended up going with the one you recommended. Can't get it to work on my pc, and the app fucks up my phone, but it works on my laptop so it's whatever.

I wrote my own software license from bits and pieces of others because they all had something I didn't like about them. I wanted to create something that's copyleft, curt and does not require attribution. Does this make sense and would it actually hold up legally? Is it dumb, or can you see some people actually having a use for this?

What's the difference between that and 2-clause BSD?
>> No. 2242 [Edit]
>>2241
The 2 clause BSD has no copyleft. Derivative works or even direct copies don't have to include the part of the license which allows for free usage(which isn't clearly defined in the 2 clause BSD). The only thing you have to include is the attribution to the original writer(copyright notice), the conditions, and the warranty, but not the part which lets you do whatever you want to it within some parameters.

This license also doesn't require the name of any copyright holder.

To clarify by free you mean libre or gratis? The 2-BSD states

> Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification
which seems to cover the libre part for source distributions.

If you mean gratis, then your license mentions "and/or sell copies of the Software" and allows binary distribution, which would prevent that.
>> No. 2244 [Edit]
>>2243
No, I don't mean gratis. Free as defined as
>deal in the Software without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, and/or sell
Somebody could sell their version for money, but the person who bought it would be able to do all of the above with their copy after buying it. Binary distributions can still be copied and sold. Somebody could also de-compile binary software and/or otherwise modify it in some way.

The bsd license does not require this part
>Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met:
To be included in derivatives and copies of the software. You only have to leave Copyright <YEAR> <COPYRIGHT HOLDER>, the list, and the warranty.
