Canada to Block VPN?
6 Jan 2017
According to new documents recently released by Canadian government, emerging issues may include targeting the use of virtual private networks and website blocking. The document identifies a few issues, each likely to be exceptionally controversial. One of the issues involves the use of VPN for copyright infringing purposes. VPNs are widely used in corporate environments to ensure secure and safe communications and by a growing number of Internet users seeking technological tools to better protect their privacy online. The same technologies can be used to hide copyright infringing activity, however.
Much like new legal rules for VPN use, new legislation on accessing foreign streaming services like Netflix and other would be complicated and difficult to enforce. With millions of Canadian Netflix users, there is no possibility of targeting individuals. The only real possibility is take action against the streaming services themselves. Canada already has tough laws targeting websites that enable infringement, but so-called hybrid services are a business issue for rights holders rather than a matter for copyright reform - according to Toronto Star
Many Canadian users noticed that asking to ban legal technologies because they can be used illegally is ridiculous!
Good news that there is still a solution how to bypass VPN blocking by ISPs and Canadian Government.
Usually, ISPs are blocking the ports that are used by common VPN tunneling protocols, such as PPTP or L2TP. Some powerful VPN providers are able to overcome the restrictions.
Trust.Zone VPN service can't be completely blocked by ISP or Government agencies in Canada because Trust.Zone VPN service may forward the encrypted internet traffic via HTTP Port 80, HTTPS Port 443 and DNS Port 53 which are never blocked by ISP.
If VPN is set to work on port 443 than your ISP is able to see something which will look like you are browsing a website with HTTPS like Gmail, PayPal and other. This means all your ISP and potential government agencies can see how much traffic you use, not what you are using it for.
The latest Trust.Zone VPN service stats revealed that there is a high increase in subscribers from Canada last month. Traffic from Canada is currently up over 250% and still growing...
