Torrent websites like The Pirate Bay illegally share copyright material. But will you get a virus instead of what you’re really looking for?
Proxies are legal in the United States, the UK, and most countries. They are illegal in some places including China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. This is due to the censorship of content they believe undermines the power of their government or cultural beliefs. Because a proxy server can bypass these restrictions, it could be used for illegal purposes.
