According to Slashdot, that iTunes EULA aggreement that you just agreed to without reading contained some big changes for those of us who travel and live abroad:

"I just accepted the new terms of service for iTunes and found that I will no longer be allowed to access US iTunes outside of the United States. This may seem like no big deal but, I am a US citizen living abroad and I regularly purchase and view TV and movies from AppleTV. Not to mention US citizens just traveling abroad. Does anyone know if this has been enforced or have themselves been affected by this?"

Obviously, Apple wants to sell as much media as possible and doesn’t care if you are in St. Petersburg Florida or St. Petersburg, Russia.  This has the entertainment industry written all over it.  Perhaps this had something to do with the recent deals made for DRM-Free Music. 

 

They just don’t get it do they?
