Oh my words are limited due to warning but I will keep it simple.
Our not so beautiful word means the unauthorized reproduction or use of a copyrighted item (potato)
I wouldn't use that word but rather ''cheating'' or ''exploiting'' the system.Still punishable..
A lot of producers (Didn't notice even bethesda to care) don't give a damn if someone got game one day earlier because they pretended to be Australian.But certain websites and platform do.
Bans and restrictions cases are very low
(You get the cake one day earlier before the birthday)
BUT in such rare cases and if you get noticed it's bad.
For example steam since there is a lot of pc gamers in this group.
That's against Steam's user policy, and they can ban your entire account.
Section 3A, Paragraph 4:
"You agree that you will not use IP proxying or other methods to disguise the place of your residence, whether to circumvent geographical restrictions on game content, to purchase at pricing not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose. If you do this, we may terminate your access to your Account."
Be careful, as they do enforce this. Google is your friend here to see all the cases where it has been enforced.
I suggest you wait a lil bit before you start rushing like an angry 12 year old Russian kid to B site.
