    there are legitimate uses - some websites (like gamespot for example) localise and don't have an option to look at US content instead.

    Well i don't think IP address applies to countries anymore it's proberly more to do with ISP'S. Give me a link to a program that you are tring to watch or PM me with the link.

    Edit: 203.?.?.? always used to be australia but not any more.

    You need to go through proxy server in another country. You can try google for such programs.
