Hmmm, You'd think the Greece issues would eclipse this. Isn't there a lower level body that could investigate this?

This seems a fairly clear cut violation of European law to me. Presumably there will be fines involved.

(It's worth noting that the price of Adobe Creative Suite is standardised across Europe to comply with this law, which is why I haven't bought it; it's actually quite a bit more expensive than the US, because of "localisation costs" – a bit irritating when my first language is English!)
