Re: Incompetence expected
I'm not entirely convinced Netflix care too much about VPNs.
In their ideal world, they'd have one single library/store that was available globally.
Only reason they can't, is all the regional licensing tied to the content they've bought in from external producers. By at least being seen to do something, they can tell those producers they're trying to stop it leaking out where it shouldn't. If they actually did manage to truly block people, then those people might decide to stop giving money to netflix.
If they really wanted to lock the place down, they'd tie credit cards, to addresses, to regions, to localized logins, to IP addresses etc.
