Have you ever encountered, ‘YouTube Video Not Available in Your Country’ error while casually surfing videos on the internet. Well, that YouTube video is blocked or restricted  by uploader from viewing. Such annoying experience may lead to craving more to watch such videos. No doubt that YouTube is the best and free video sharing site that serves gazillion of users from all over the world. Many of our users might be aware of Hulu site which is restricted to USA users only. Same is the case with certain videos, where video owners implement country or geographical restriction to the video. Unless you’re surfing the web behind proxies, YouTube can easily detect your IP address and thus the geographic location of your PC.

Either due to strict copyright issues in your country or owners disinterest in targeting users from specific country enforces such restriction on the web. It is a perfect example of web is no longer unrestricted. However, this should not be, in any way, categorized under classic example of censorship. For example, Neo Sports in India was streaming French Open 2012 live in Indian continent only.
