Hello, I'm a noob for this kind of stuff but would like to learn. VPN (virtual private networks) help protect your internet activity remain anonymous from your ISPs correct? So of all the recommended VPN's what is the most recommended ones to use strictly for downloading torrents. Anybody recommend a good one? BTGuard, HMA, Tor Guard, or anything really good? Are the free ones out there any good? Some VPNs such as hidemyass look pretty tempting to join but after some due diligence, it seems that they log your internet activity and actually kick people out for downloading torrents such as movies, music, ebooks, and etc. I don't plan to download anything illegal but it's good to know what options are out there just in case. I'm also concerned with server locations. Let's say I live in a country with strict downloading laws such as Japan (law states anybody downloading music and shit can serve up to 2 years in prison). So in regards to having optimal downloading speed, should I get a VPN that has servers within the country I live or outside the country I live in that has lenient dl laws? Although the latter sounds smart, just want to know. Thanks.
