I have never had a problem with Amazon UK and ordering eBooks. I do not use a VPN or use any other means to hide my IP. Also the email I use is a US based one.

The latter is ironic since the author is Canadian and the book apparently has a uniquely Canadian setting. If there are benefits to not making an ebook available in its home market and the largest English speaking market on the face of the earth I'm afraid they escape me. And, of course, all will abide by these restrictions and refrain from travelling, let alone piracy. Won't they?
Yes, I agree it is a strange situation. I have the book available in paper and I check periodically to see if it has been made available as an e-book in the US. I just think it is a good example of the weirdness of geo-restrictions.
