This Friday, Aug. 3, 2012 photo shows Irish national Colin Manning sits in front of a laptop computer in Berlin, Germany. Citizens from the European Union are free to live and work in any of its 27 member states, but broadcast services are still strictly limited by national boundaries. Manning, who has lived in Germany for more than a decade, fumed about a system he described as “completely mad in the digital age.” An avid fan of Irish sports, the 51-year-old has turned to the gray area of 'virtual private networks' to get his fix of hurling and Gaelic football. For $10 a month VPN services allow users to make their computer appear like it's somewhere else on the Internet, giving them access to NBC, the BBC or in Manning's case, Irish broadcaster RTE.
