Legal Question

Asked on: 6/10/13, 5:42 am

Is it legal (in the USA) to circumvent geographic content restrictions on the internet using a proxy/VPN?

Example: A streaming video costs $10 in the USA but $5 in the UK based on my external IP address; I use a VPN to make the online store think I'm connecting from the UK in order to pay the lower price. Is this legal?
