Correct, there is no conspiracy against Kobo as a Canadian company. Most Americans see "kobo Vox" and assume it is Japanese (or Italian) product from an unknown company. I doubt very much they have any idea it is from Canada.
I have a Kobo touch and love it!
And I have a Sony, and a Kindle Fire, and origin of the company that produces it had nothing to do with my purchase decision.
Hell, they are all manufactured in China, or Taiwan anyway.
