“No logs” VPN provider TorGuard has settled with a group of movie studios that have sued them for encouraging online piracy and copyright infringement. TorGuard will “use commercially reasonable efforts to block BitTorrent traffic on its servers in the United States using firewall technology,” according to the settlement documents filed in court.
