39199681 story Australians Urged To Spoof IP Addresses For Better Prices 206 Posted by samzenpus on Thursday October 25, 2012 @05:28AM from the won't-somebody-please-think-of-the-savings? dept. angry tapir writes "Choice, a prominent Australian consumer advocacy group, has urged Australians to obfuscate their IP address to avoid geo-blocking and use US forwarding addresses to beat high IT prices. Australia is currently in the middle of parliamentary inquiry into the country's disproportionately high prices for technology. Choice also suggested setting up US iTunes accounts and using surrogate US addresses for forwarding packages from American stores. Choice has noted previously that Australians pay 52 per cent more for digital music downloads on iTunes compared to US users."
