You know, I think maybe our proxy at work caches website data. I know my browser on my computer does. If a computer is temporarily storing data in order to make responses faster, exactly where is the delineation that makes the cached data something illegal?
I know that my local browser cache isn't sharing publicly, and I know my proxy at work isn't sharing files with the rest of the world. I know it's different. Is that the line? Is that the demarcation? Does Cloudflare review the contents of what they are sharing by hand or do they automate the process of caching? If they're reviewing content by hand, well in my mind, that makes them complicit. On the other hand, if they treat everyone the same, using an automated process, well that's different. I know the law may not see it differently, but reality makes a person responsible for their choices. If you write an algorithm that treats all customers the same, well regardless of the law, that's morally different than actually deciding to help someone do something illegal.
Our court system is built on the idea that people make the decisions of what is morally right or wrong in application of the law. That's what I'm really getting at here. Not how the laws are written, but what is right and wrong.
I really don't know the answer to what is the legal demarcation. I don't know what Cloudflare does. I admit ignorance. Educate me. Please.
