GEMA is a state-authorized collecting society and performance rights organization based in Germany, with administrative offices in Berlin and Munich. GEMA represents the usage rights stemming from authors' rights (e.g., mechanical licensing, broadcast licensing, synchronization licensing) for the musical works of those composers, lyricists, and publishers who are members in the organization. It is the only such institution in Germany and a member of BIEM and CISAC.
Ouh yeah, GEMA really sucks but I don't care about it anymore. At least for my purpose, the internet. Here the GEMA mainly appears to be a problem when somebody, located in Germany, is trying to watch videos on youtube, but there are enough webhosters left to use. Furthermore you can also hide your ass by using an "IP changing program", like I use SecurityKiss for example...
As a result you appear as a user located in the U.S., Britain, France, it's your choice, for youtube and the GEMA is out. Simple as thatedit on 23Wed, 08 Jan 2014 23:22:22 -0600America/Chicago17America/ChicagoWed, 08 Jan 2014 23:22:22 -0600fpm11 by Grenzerfahrung because: (no reason given)

Gladly, but the free version of securitykiss is limited to about 300 MB a day, which isn't much traffic. I payed 80€ for one year and now there is no more limit concerning the traffic. I'm also able to choose much more different servers all over the world after upgrading SK.
Anyway, look for some crack in case you dont want to pay something. Furthermore there are some free other progs (Hotspot Shield, Tor Vidalia Bundle and so on) similiar to securitykiss but I've experienced none of them so far. Finally I dont regret the 80€ anyway because instead of the very low speed I've experienced when changing a proxy server manually, securitykiss is really fast. Most of the time I dont even notice anything
By the way. Where are you from? Where in Germany?
