How can I circumvent regional restrictions in the Android Market?

I'd like to install an app from the Market which is limited to the USA (specifically Google Music). When I search for the app myself in the Market app on my phone, it does not find the app; it seems to be filtered.

So how do I install apps which are not meant for my country?

Before we got paid apps in the Android Market in Denmark, I used to use Market Enabler (requires root). This allowed me to pretend that I was a resident in another country, and thus buy paid apps from the Market.

Perhaps you can use the same solution, faking the market to believe you are from the US?

Perfect, and good to know. :) –  bjarkef Jul 5 '11 at 6:14
    
MarketEnabler no longer works. AndroidMarket checks for IP address as well to find the user's location. Can't cheat any more ;) –  user12014 Jan 29 '12 at 7:40
    
If that's the case then maybe you can connect via VPN or Proxy. Though I'm not sure as to how. –  ubershmekel Feb 7 '12 at 18:09
