Everyone who does anything technical in China (I'm talking of Chinese people here), knows to use a VPN to tunnel out to Japan or somewhere similar. If it's "illegal" you certainly wouldn't know it.

I recently returned from 6 months in Beijing where I reliably used my OpenVPN connection to an Amazon EC2 server whenever I needed something "special". Don't get me wrong, the great firewall is a pain in the ass, and they don't have the infrastructure (intentionally) to support that much traffic flowing in and out, but it's the same intarwebs we all use.
