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.
Because when a US publisher buys the right to publish a book, they might only have the right to sell it "in the US." Other publishers bought the rights to sell that book in other countries. I honestly have no idea how Amazon works in other countries, that's why I ask. When you log in to Amazon.com (is that what you do?), you can see all the books, or only the ones available to you?
