I live in the EU out side the UK. I have a house in the UK and when there I willingly pay for digital content, in addition to the TV licence. When out of the UK I have to circumvent geo-locking if I want any sort of watchable video.
I am made a lesser or greater pirate by this, your views may vary.
There are only two reasons that I can see for geo-locking:
1. To preserve local culture.
2. To maximize profit of large media companies.
If I am willing to pay for UK content and do not watch the really dire TV here, what has anyone gained by forcing irregular or illegal activity on me.
Go Ansip, go!
