I wish they would go after Google next and its region blocked vids next.
Region blocked vids, 100% would love that fixed. I mean its not often I get region blocked vids. But when it does happen, its super annoying.
You guys know that's not Google, right?
In this case, the EU is taking action because one corporate entity is doing this.
With what you're complaining about, Google literally only has the rights to the content in one geography. Someone entirely different owns it in another. Google cannot legally show it in the region you're in. They'd prefer to, but someone else has the rights to it.
You're angry at the wrong entity. Which, actually, is pretty common. Again, I'm sometimes really taken aback by how little some posters here understand things like this, despite some of those people posting about it endlessly. We're all near our 40s, shouldn't we know how businesses work? It's only a small percentage - most here either do know or simply ask questions, but unsurprisingly, the angriest always seem the least informed.

The only reason why I'm ok with that is that it counters the Lib propaganda. None of them are good of course. It just keeps some of the sheep voters in check.
What you call "lib propaganda" the rest of us call science.

Maybe we should look at some of these countries and see if some of their ideas could improve things in the US.

But whatever keeps your hate kindling is up to you.
Can't wait to see what that memo says, though. Pretty shocking that the Dems haven't leaked it yet. I wonder why.

Couldn't they just tell them to go fuck themselves? Its a company you access on the internet that you choose to use from any location in the world. I just don't understand the mechanics of how they are held to Austrialian law when they don't have a footprint there. Can someone explain this?

Alot of uninformed here, Its blocked by default on the store page country wide. Based off a user's preference, IE telling steam I'm in Germany blocks content.
I would think it would at least be by ip (internet protocol).
My steam profile says I'm from Timor-Leste
