Q&A: What are the legalities of running a public proxy server?
Question by marinehacker202: What are the legalities of running a public proxy server?
I am thinking about hosting a Public website proxy server (for ppl to use at schools/work)
Wondering if, since my IP address will be used for everyone’s web traffic, if one user does something illegal through my proxy, will I be held accountable?

This varies by jurisdiction. You may not be held legally accountable, but you can bet that if someone commits illegal activities through your proxy, you’re going to be visited by law enforcement – and that’s a best-case scenario.
