I am an honest man. Not a perfect one but I try. Given choice and acceptable price I will always try to buy.

I already got pissed a few times before with my inability to buy content in Croatia. It wasn’t question of money. Content was just not available for my IP.

Since I am in States now I though that no further issues would arise – I have a money and I have a proper address. Armed with confidence I tried to rent a movie on Amazon. Guess what? I was denied opportunity to actually pay.

Amazon has policy of not allowing movie purchases with foreign credit cards. It does not really matter that I am actually living in US. It does not matter that I can use my credit card for other Amazon purchases. I don’t have an US credit card and that is enough to deny me a purchase.

And then movie industry wonders why people turn to pirates…
