It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Any answer here would be pure speculation, and not really constructive. – Rory Alsop Dec 25 '12 at 16:06

It can be done, but considering the amount of downloads and the possibilities to cover your tracks, e.g. running through multiple tunnels, it's highly unlikely.
