A large billboard is being driven around the area where Netflix is headquartered, protesting the company’s crackdown on virtual private networks (VPN), TorrentFreak reported.
The billboard carries the message, “We ♥ Our Privacy” with a URL to OpenMedia’s petition to Netflix to stop blocking VPN users.
OpenMedia recently sent a letter to Netflix when its petition asking the company to end its VPN blockade hit 45,000 signatures.
Netflix said it is cracking down on VPN users and subscribers who use unblocking services to access regionally-restricted content.
OpenMedia said Netflix’s stance on VPN usage is a concern for its privacy-conscious supporters, who use VPNs to protect their privacy.
“We shouldn’t have to choose between Netflix and privacy,” said OpenMedia.
“We believe there are better ways for you to respect creators and enforce your geographic restrictions.”
