Do you seriously think that? Is that really what you've gleaned from all of this?

The laws around licensing and ownership of content are different in every country. Different people even tend to OWN the same song in different countries. This is very complicated. Just because a company figures out a way to stream in the United States under the provisions of the DMCA and other laws does not mean they know how to stream that content legally in your country.

If no solutions exist for what you want in your country, and the market is lucrative enough to support one, why don't you start one?
