I have a problem regarding the $20 upgrade. It's not about the monies. I live in Romania, witch doesn't have a iTunes Store. Romania is also a member of the EU. The problem is that i cannot buy, from let's say, Germany's iTunes Store, because i don't have a credit card issued there. This is against EU law and free trade policies. As EU citizen, i'm FREE to buy from any merchand within the EU zone, without any questions regarding my living place, adress, hair colour and sex, and without paying any additional fees (import tax, etc.). It's a unfair business practise that, as iPod owner and as EU citizen, I simply CANNOT buy the software upgrade. Period. I called the local Apple distributor (IRIS S.A.), and they too cannot upgrade my iPod. Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria and any country without an iTunes Store from Europe is in the same situation. What does Apple think about this? It removed an entire thread from his discussion group regarding this problem.
