I understood this "if your in the u.s. you would see a video when you click on a link, but if you were anywhere else you would get a message saying sorry copyright laws prohibit us from showing you this video.(they would actual use different methods of getting your location tho)"
I did not get the bolded portion when you say this " in other words they would use a script to automatically change what location on their servers they will get the information you see in your web browser.
the programming at their end handles the technical details of how data is passed from them to you and the scripting handles exactly what that data is that you finally see as a web page."

they way computers talk to one another never changes, they send and receive packets of data(0's and 1's), so it's the programmes job to establish this connection, interpret the data received then send back data when needed/requested, so "technical details".
technical details of how data is passed
computers are computers no matter cost/where they are and everything has to be stored in a certain order/place if a server(computer) needs to send you the "video" data it will be in one place/file if it needs to send you the "sorry notice" data that will be in a different place/file.
what location on their servers
now when web browsing this forum, it's always the same programme that sends/receives you/r data but it's the scripts that go off and find what data(0's and 1's) it needs to send to you,
what that data is that you finally see as a web page
what data is needed depends on which link you have clicked on, and is stored in a different place, this is then passed to the programme to be sent to you.
each page is seen by you has something different, a black line, picture or a letter but to a pc it is all seen as the same thing, lot's of 0's and 1's, it's just the order of those numbers change, depending on what page your looking at.
what you see on a screen looks nice and can be understood but to a pc it's just a lot of lights that it needs to turn on or off depending on what order the 0's and 1's are received in. 0 being off and 1 being on.
