The made-for-DRM CFAA that might classify fooling a flimsy filter as "unauthorized access to a computer system" is very much US-specific. Over here on the other side of the world, I'm thankful I'm not subject to such legislation or judicial system, but to one which still has a sensible definition of "hacking".
At the very least it would be theft of services, although this is typically a state thing, so I'm not sure how jurisdiction would work up in the air.
If you have a contract, is this really a crime in the US? That's a civil matter!
