    Well, what a proxy does is redirect your torrenting traffic through a different server whose location you determine when you select which proxy to utilize. They would need to get a court order to pry open that proxy? server’s mainframe to find out, so if you use one that’s out of the country, yes, you’d be pretty safe. It’s not 100%, but it nearly? is if you do it in? a smart and safe manner.
