There is a difference between accessing geo restricted content and downloading pirated material. Using PressReader to access the newspapers and magazines is legitimate. Using a VPN with the service is more of a grey area, but I’m not aware of any illegality. For example, there are various threads on boards showing people how to bypass geo restricted content (Netflix, Amazon, Nintendo).

Torrents generally come from an unverified source and so it cannot be determined if all of the content is legal.

I fully understand his point and he is right it is a double standard. Having said that the experience of using a vpn to then access the very poor viewer is such a crap experience IMO it won't be undercutting any monetised options. Great if you want to do it a couple times but nobody is cancelling their subscription to a physical paper over it
