It turns out that Starlink, the satellite internet service whose number of users continues to increase day by day, does not allow users to discount pirated content.
Elon Musk’s satellite internet service Starlink is highly vulnerable to internet piracy. Therefore, the service provider, which is currently in the testing phase, has banned users from downloading unlicensed content.
One Reddit user wondered if it was possible to download copyrighted content over the Starlink satellite internet, and as a result, posted a screenshot of an email from Starlink. The Starlink usage policy prohibits illegal downloads of copyrighted content, otherwise, it may end providing temporary or complete service, the email said.
The notification came after substrate-97 tried to download a program from the American television network CBS via torrent. The Reddit member says he did it without a VPN for about two months from the moment he connected the dish. But the first message only came last weekend. Using VPN services can avoid such warnings from Starlink, it said.
According to experts, VPN services can complicate such download data so much that they do not give it to the internet provider’s verification system. Today, more than 1,500 Starlink satellites are orbiting Earth, and the number of users subscribing to the service exceeds 500,000 people.
