Re: Logic; something illegal; make tools to bypass law illegal Corporate VPNs are typically used to allow a user access to non-public networks.
Public VPNs are typically used for rerouting traffic (i.e. game providers had these to bypass the milk run to their site for lower latency). It can be used for other useful items such as accessing 'local' programming (eg. accessing Canandian TV programs that are only available in Canada if your VPN has a presence/proxy there).
Companies like Google would hate proxy/vpns as they skew their data harvesting/collection. Eg. Most residential IPs are geotagged. Using a proxy would really skew that.
Basically - it makes it harder for big brother/big corporate to collect off of you, but can be lucrative for the VPN/proxy provider.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Slippery Slope First they came for the child porn suspects and I said nothing because I'm not a pervert. Then they came for the terrorist suspects and I said nothing because I am not a terrorist. Then they came for the copyright scofflaws and I said nothing because I am not a pirate. Then they came for the porn, the free press, the VPNs, and everything else that is or enables free speech, effectively turning the Internet into nothing more than a government white-list of corporate content.
Re: Slippery Slope Very true. 1984 here we come.
Bye Bye Internet Bye Bye Free Speech...

Re: Aaryn from Big Brother 15 makes that place look so racist
said by 90115534:Why do you have so much hate within you?
Though then again it is racist and horrible. Just like Aaryn.
I always hated her.
That's not good.
