Sigh.

It's not too much of an issue if it's just one country - although the fact that the US controls TLDs is annoying.

I mean, all end users need to do is set their primary DNS to one outside the country and they'll be fine.

It's a real pain in the ass if a bunch of other countries follow suit though.

If worst comes to worst, pirates will just use IP's to access sites, or IRC to share the files.
