1st order obfuscation

or making it more difficult for copyright holders to track you.

When discussing whether we need to take additional steps to obscure our downloads when we move to the UK, the subject of whether we need to maintain the subscription to our current VPN.

It was decided that we probably need to as the principle is that the owners of the intellectual property are more likely to "go after" those that have not taken any additional steps to hide their IP address when downloading torrents and other media from the Internet. We will not need a VPN to access and download BBC iPlayer programs.
