Hi Tor Talkers,

will that "lock" apply to the Tor browser, too?

The company says new technology will lock users' browsers and prevent Internet access until they pay a fine.
AFAIK, anti-piracy companies fish for IP addresses via BitTorrent, than send notices to internet providers responsible for those IP addresses. Because Tor is a proxy, they will send notices to internet providers catering to exit nodes. If an exit node does not browse the Web (I am confident that they don't), it'll be fine.
