AMP, geo-restrictions

AMP, geo-restrictions: Link goes to a machine-translation of a German PC-Welt article, about how some television shows (such as the CBS "CSI" property) can no longer be viewed in all regions via Adobe Media Player. The viewing policy is set by the content provider (such as CBS) rather than by the technology provider (Adobe), and recently CBS did enact viewing policies to respect their local agreements. I've been searching around and haven't found as many complaints as I might have expected, but it's a difficult thing to search for... if you see repercussions or have other questions then please drop a note in comments here and I'll work on it, thanks.
