My friends and I were talking about computer law and were wondering if proxy servers had a CYA for people pirating via proxy. For example, if guy 1 connects to http://www.skreemr.com/index.html via a proxy such as Tor or an in-browser proxy and download an MP3 file who is held responsible? The downloader or the proxy owner?

Both. If the proxy owner knows its happening he gets in crap.

What if the proxy owner knows it is happening and he/she reports it to the authorities and ejects them from the proxy?
