Okay so then what do I do? Am I just a sitting duck until the FBI chooses to pay me a visit? Or can I employ another technology? Someone mentioned the use of a firewall. How would that help?

It's the internet, assume everything is logged and that your identity is possible to find out.

Plan for the worst, hope for the best.

No, there is no other technology of widespread adoption that will help you.

Your router is a hardware firewall, you can play around with your software firewalls, if someone wants in, they'll get in.

Compartmentalise everything. Seperate devices for seperate purposes. Encrypt all drives. Configure your VPN DNS correctly. Disable javascript.

A sitting duck you may be, but amongst a giant flock, the risk is low unless you stand out particularly to the hunter.

Chances are the FBI won't be bothered to waste resources on minor piracy (unless you are doing large scale distribution). But just keep in mind that you could be under additional surveillance.

Switch to a Linux machine that won't be filled with backdoors. Enable noscript. Use a no-logs VPN outside the US. Make your firewall as strict as possible. Encrypt everything. Pray.

You could also try SSH tunnelling, though that's more awkward to set up.

Get a cheap VPS outside the US and tunnel into that.
