you are not from USA.

lot of sites (especially one for DRM or content thats US only) prevents only US IP address ranges)

Is it just me or it is just useless form of filtering?
What if you’re accessing from US proxy ?
(you’re working for US based company via VPN and going out to internet from US based proxy)

What if you’re using anonymous proxy (there are 100s of them on the internet.)

Im not really sure WHY they even bother. filtering users based on IP isnt perfect and never will be.
I know IPV6 isnt coming anywhere in near future but If users are browsing with IPv6?

Real question is, is there any perfect way to filter them (provide social security number? , not that I would submit that over internet)
