    So - I've been using my iPod touch to do all my app updating for the past month since Apple released an updated ToS that clearly states at the top of it:

    Has anyone else from America, living in another country, used the App Store since 27 Jan 09 and had any problems? The nice thing is that updating from iPod is that it doesn't bug me with this stuff and I don't have to agree to anything that I have no intention of following.

    (Does anyone even READ the ToS...?) :p

    Actually that language has been in the iTMS/iTS ToS since the beginning. So no one really cares.

    They don't check.

    They clearly could if they wanted to -- Hulu.com, for example, can detect immediately that my IP address comes from outside the US, and thus disallows me from even browsing their site.

    If your credit card is from the U.S, you are good. Or the card needs to be from the same country as the store you are trying to use.

    I used my BoA debit card as my "main" iTMS store when I lived in Singapore and had no problems using the US store.
