Start by reading this: Why you should start using a VPN (and how to choose the best one for your needs)

A VPN is a virtual private network. Basically, you install VPN software on your PC, and you start your VPN software before you download anything. It creates a connection that accomplishes two things: (1) All of the data is encrypted, so your ISP can't detect that you just downloaded Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and (2) Your IP address is hidden behind a proxy server, so the companies who go after anyone who has downloaded Always Sunny in Philadelphia (or anything else) will be unable to tell that your IP address was used to download the copyrighted content.

In order for that to work you typically have to subscribe to a VPN service provider. My personal favorite is IP Vanish. It's not free, but if you want to download things using file sharing software like Bittorrents, it's easily worth $10 a month.

There are also free VPN services out there.
