Netflix og China Sprunga niður á VPN Notkunarskilmálar?

Post Icon

A par af fréttum hafa lent auga okkar undanfarna mánuði, both involving VPN’s. The first is news that Netflix hefur verið beðin um að banna VPN notkun of their service by individuals using to get around regional content locking. The second is an auka í takmörkunum sem hafa áhrif á VPN notendur innan Kína. In both cases, it appears that personal VPN’s are taking some lumps. While this is to be expected with any growing technology, it’s a bit depressing to see the VPN technology getting a bad wrap. For users, this is another example of the ever changing landscape on the internet. It seems each month, og á hverju ári, notendur eru að horfa tækni Sprout upp (og fá hakkað niður) in a variety of different ways.

First up are the claims that Netflix is under pressure to reduce VPN access to its streaming media service. For expatriates abroad, og fjölmargar notendur Netflix…this could be catastrophic. TorrentFreak picked up this story in the Fall of 2014, og fullt af verslunum fréttir hljóp með það meðal Forbes. In the months following the news, Netflix út yfirlýsingu að segja að sögusagnir voru ekki satt, og þeir hefðu engin áform um að banna VPN notendur from accessing the service. But if you read their statements carefully, þú getur séð að Netflix er að grípa til aðgerða gegn VPN er, per its policy and contracts with the content owners. Hins, þeir hafa ekki ráðist allir “Sérstakt átak” to outright ban VPN’s. So glass half-full we suppose. But what is a user to do? Sit around and hope their service isn’t the one who gets chopped?

Jæja fyrir æði, þú getur tekið að líta á sumir gögn til að sjá það Netflix er ekki að fara að beina banna VPN er hvenær sem er bráðum. They can’t, they have too many users who fall into the category. According to internet data analytics firm, GlobalWebIndex, Netflix hefur eitthvað eins 30 Milljón notendur erlendis, virtually all of them using a VPN of some sort to connect. By their estimates, 20 Million af 30 Million eru inni Kína og augljóslega utan svæðisbundnum mörkum Netflix samninga við fjölmiðla eigendur (eins Foxtel, til dæmis). While this is welcome news, og merki um að Netflix verður að bregðast vel ef það vill varðveita borga notandi undirstaða þess, it is not a silver bullet. Speaking of China

VPN Cat and Mouse Games

Einnig lagt áherslu á við ný viðfangsefni sem blasa persónulega VPN er nýleg hreyfa við Kína til að auka takmarkanir á þeirra “Great Firewall”. In January of this year, fréttir fjölmiðla var buzzing með tilkynningum að Kína hefði skera burt mörgum vinsæll VPN þjónustu, svo sem StrongVPN, Astrill, and Goldenfrog VyprVPN. Since just about everyone with an internet enabled device in China uses a VPN, this made pretty big news. Some small VPN services escaped unscathed, and the big services were able to restore access within a day or two. Enn, það lítur út eins erfiðum tímum framundan.

VPN users are likely in for some cat-and-mouse games down the road. These examples with Netflix and China are confirmation of what many have thought for some time: personal VPN will soon feel the pressure too. That goes for DNS services as well too, unfortunately. Ultimately we are seeing more restrictions, and it’s coming from all over. In the case of Netflix it’s the content owner/licensor, and in the case of China it’s obviously the government. In either case we are seeing an increase in focus to personal VPN services and also an increase in restrictions aimed at reducing their effectiveness.

Við mælum með að þú borga loka eftirtekt til VPN Þjónustuveitan stuðningi upplýsingum, and those that find themselves with second or third tier providers may find themselves on the outside looking in. Cat-og-Mús leikir tilhneigingu til að taka tíma og fjármagn, eitthvað smærri fyrirtæki mega ekki hafa; which might bode well for the big guys. The drawback being the big guys can be easier to spot (held IP og umferð). Just look at what happened to Astrill, VyprVPN, and StrongVPN. All pay services confirmed issues in China. As of this writing, allt 3 were back up and functioning. Like we said, welcome to the new cat-and-mouse. aftur, no clear victories here. Just more battles
