Disadvantages of VPN

Users of VPN services often face the dilemma associated with copyright infringement. Virtual private networks (VPNs) allow you to hide your real IP address, providing anonymity and protection on the internet. However, such tools can attract legal liability, especially in relation to copyright infringement.

What can lead to consequences?

When a user uses VPN to access copyrighted content such as streaming online movies, music, books, and other protected materials, it can be grounds for accusations of copyright infringement. For example, if a user uses VPN to download or distribute copyrighted materials, it can lead to legal consequences.

Circumvention of geographic restrictions

One example is using VPN to bypass geographic restrictions and access content that is not available in the user’s region. Although this method is often used to access restricted content, such usage can infringe upon copyrights and ownership rights.

Illegal downloading

Another example is using VPN for illegal downloading of movies, music, or software. In this case, even if the user hides their real IP address using VPN, copyright holders can discover the source of the infringements and approach VPN providers demanding disclosure of the user’s personal data.


It is important to remember that using VPN does not exempt users from copyright laws. Although VPN technology provides privacy and security on the internet, it does not protect against liability for copyright infringement. Users remain responsible for the lawful use of virtual private networks and content on the internet. Therefore, it is important to consciously use VPN and ensure that it is used in accordance with copyright laws.
