Is using a proxy server still legal?
ttopp 1 year ago
I was talking with a co-worker this morning, and she claimed that a new court decision made it illegal to use a proxy server to access websites. I assume that she is incorrect, which is generally a fair assumption with her, since she bases much of what she believes on what Rush Limbaugh and World Net Daily tells her, but often there is an actual fact that has been twisted into something that “proves” something nefarious about government/Obama/liberals/Saul Alinski/etc. I prefer to know the actual facts. Does anyone know what she is talking about when she says the courts have ruled that use of a proxy is illegal?
