So, I happened across an artist I heard and looked them up. They’re on iTunes. Great! I go to buy the album and bam! “That artist is not available in the Canadian store.” Listen up, big media: Your downfall will come at your own hands because of artificial limitations like this. People want your content and are willing to pay for it. You just have to get out of their way.
These kinds of artificial limitations on media drive me up the wall. Geographic restrictions, DRM, etc. All they serve to do is annoy real, valuable, paying customers. Where do you think these paying customers are going to go after getting stymied by the source? You betcha. They’re going to go after it all the while avoiding you. That’s right. No cut for you. You don’t deserve it.
I have no sympathy for you guys when you complain about piracy while preventing legitimate customers from buying your offerings.
