    Hello,

    There is a website on the internet, called Veoh, which many of you probably are familiar and have come to like it so much you visit it many times a day. For those of you who don't know what it is, Veoh is a website which provides free digital television over the internet. It has nothing to do with piracy or anything like that... you can be sure of that when you check that some huge investors include AOL-TimeWarner.

    Well, I used to visit this website MANY times a day and enjoyed its content A LOT... until Veoh closed its doors in my home country. When I googled some more information about this sudden and unexplainable event, I found out that most Latin America, Africa, Asia and may other countries had the same unexplainable blocking. Their explanation: "Unfortunately Veoh has ended service in your country due to a low concentration of users. Veoh is maintaining service in countries when we have the highest concentration of viewers." That's ridiculous! I would call that "Internet Discrimination!!!!" (by the way... there is a petition agains internet discrimination). Anyways... back to the REAL petition for this forum community:
    Is there a way of hiding/changing my IP address so the Veoh website won't display a "Veoh is no longer available in your country" message? I want to have the same rights as all other people on the internet... I don't want to feel excluded because of the country I live in!!! NO INTERNET DISCRIMINATION!!!
