Just in case PROTECT IP passes, along with its planned Domain Name Services (DNS) filtering (a.k.a. censorship) of “alleged” infringing websites, prepare yourself by reviewing these guides published by ZeroPaid.  Over the past month, ZeroPaid has published eight guides for circumventing/defeating US DNS censorship.  Links to each of the guides is posted below.

ZeroPaid Guides:  How to Circumvent and/or Defeat US DNS Censorship:

  1. Obtaining Server IPs via command prompt
  2. Using DNS Web Tools
  3. Using Your Hosts File
  4. Using MAFIAAFire
  5. Using Tor
  6. Using Foxy Proxy
  7. Changing Your DNS Server
  8. Using a VPN

If you’re still not privy as to what the “PROTECT IP” act is about and how it will break the Internet as we know it today, see my previous posts on June 1, 2011 and June 6, 2011.  Both contain links to numerous reference information, articles and technical white papers.  If you haven’t contacted your lawmakers to urge killing this nasty piece of legislation, visit “Demand Progress” where you can send a personalized email to your representatives.
