I was blocked from a purchase. I tried to buy the movie A Gentleman's Duel - an animated short by Blur Studios. You can't buy it in the UK and itunes redirects you to the US store. It then tells you that you can't buy it anyway, which is kinda dumb.
I guess it's the same principles of region coding on DVDs so that you can't buy the DVD from abroad when the movie has only just reached the cinema in another country. I'm not sure why it affects the movie short I wanted.
It's moves like that force you to go after torrents. Poor Blur just lost out on £1.19 or something of my money as a result and poor me, I save that amount and get a higher quality version without DRM.
So here's a definite case that DRM restrictions and region restrictions are losing these companies money. Not a single person in the entire UK can get that movie. Now assuming they removed all restrictions, how many people in the UK would buy it? I'm guessing more than none.
