In the News If you don't live in the US, this is a pretty common source of irritation: US companies charging crazy markups on products sold in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and the rest of the world. The Australian government has had enough of this practice, and started an inquiry into the matter. Yesterday (or today? Timezones confuse me) Apple, Microsoft, and Adobe had to answer questions in a public hearing.

Clearly, the only viable solution would be extinguish this kind of uneven power. If you sell in your market any company should have the right to buy there and resell on their own country. Case closed for books/electronics/medicine/etc heinous abuse.


You heard about the recent supreme court case that ruled against Wiley & Sons? That's kind of exactly what happened ;)
