Re: Copyright Law Changes: VPN & Other Experiences I don't see the issue with using a US-based VPN provider. A Canadian court order or warrant has no jurisdiction in the US. They would have to go the MLAT (Mutual Law Assistance Treaty) route, which, from what I understand, is rarely done as it takes a very long time.
That is with the assumption that said provider doesn't give up the goods when simply asked.
