Being a subscriber to SpaceX’s Starlink, it’s likely that you are in one of the most remote places on the surface of the planet, which kind of elicits a kind of freedom in and of itself. While true, pirating copyrighted contents is not one of them—at least, not according to the ISP’s Acceptable Use Policy.
A would-be pirate in the persona of a Reddit user named “substrate-97” was made a sample of the notion after he attempted to download a movie illegally online, PCMag reports.
More specifically, said user tried to use a certain “CBS show” via a popular peer-to-peer program that is commonplace among true blue pirates on the internet.
While not necessarily an absolutely fool-proof method for not getting detected of activities online, it seems likely that the Redditor has had an attempt at illicitly downloading content online without the use of a VPN.
