Windows "Microsoft doesn't understand that people travel around the world, and are hugely sentimental about things they've paid for. Here's a list of some services that are affected by Windows Live ID billing region locks and what you will lose if you move countries." It ain't pretty.

All big companies need to realize this. More than that, they need to understand that there is this thing called "the internets". Restricting your service to US only or UK only or whatever other "only" you want is restricting the amount of money you'll receive. Why settle selling to one country, when you can sell to the whole world?
