Yes. What makes you think we're not allowed? Amazon.com sells an international Kindle to Norwegian customers, even with whispernet access. An extensive library of e-books is available to us.

This is why I always run my newly bought e-books through Calibre and a few select add-ons. I could of course go completely pirate but I think authors deserve at least some money for their books. Funny thing is, if I want to pay for books, Amazon provides the path of least resistance for us Norwegians.

If Amazon tries to pull similar crap with me, I will probably try to get help from Norwegian consumer authorities. The same guys that made Apple drop DRM in iTunes a few years ago.
