Spoiler: Republic Act 10175 Section 4 - Article 4: (4) System Interference. — The intentional alteration or reckless hindering or interference with the functioning of a computer or computer network by inputting, transmitting, damaging, deleting, deteriorating, altering or suppressing computer data or program, electronic document, or electronic data message, without right or authority, including the introduction or transmission of viruses. You are interfering with a network's ability to block certain ISPs and regions by using a VPN. Sounds like they aren't handing out permission for people to use VPNs if they are actively trying to block those services. Of course, they would probably never go after anyone for using a VPN....but one could easily interpret the use of VPNs as illegal. Another little fun fact from that RA: "Cybersex. — The willful engagement, maintenance, control, or operation, directly or indirectly, of any lascivious exhibition of sexual organs or sexual activity, with the aid of a computer system, for favor or consideration." Talking dirty online is a crime in the Philippines.
