Here's a basic example of the situation I am in:
1.Friend downloads full-length, new release movie on shady internet site (felony).
2.Uploads it to a randomly created, cloud hosting service account (fake info, such as name/etc.).
3.Uses my home IP address to create the account from my ISP with no anonymity.
*Note that this happened over four years ago, and nothing's happened so far.
Now he wants to get the movie off the cloud service without tracks leading back to him. But he already logged in and created the create from my home ISP, then uploaded the movie from another IP, so there's a good chance they have logged it and can get straight to me if anyone knew it was illegal content, which I doubt anyone actually checks. Anyways, here's the tough question:
Even assuming the fact that he created the account from my home ISP, which is the same account later logged in from a remote IP and which the movie was uploaded from, is it worth it to:
1.Try and login anonymously (Tor, Elite proxy, VPN, etc.) to download it back and close the account.
2.Or would one be just as likely to get in trouble doing it from behind Tor as from the same home ISP?
ASSUMING anything happens here, and in hopes that, since 4 years have passed, chances are the only savior here from charges. So basically, is it dumb to try and "get the file back and delete the account" from an anonymous location, or would we be both no more or no less likely to get in trouble downloading it and logging in right from my home ISP than from, say, Tor/Proxy/VPNs?
This is all in dire hope that nobody ever knows and this just stays as a silent boo-boo forever.
