I think that is why most people use TOR. The owners of your origin network usually have more influence over you than foreign researchers.
This is definitely the situation here in Thailand, where the TOR web site is banned, and distributing TOR is now illegal. Most people just use it to access youtube (also banned) since if they use standard web proxies, the police could detect that they are circumventing the censors (also illegal, obviously). Breaking cybercrime laws is no light matter, since offenders tend to just disappear instead of undergoing the standard legal process.
