Just buy gift certificates off eBay, for a little more than the actuall value of the certificate, then make an account with the US ITS, and start downloading:) Or if you have friends or family in the USA, just get them to email you a certificate:)

That's what I do, and it works perfectly:)

And as far as I'm concerned, it is perfectly legal. It is exactly the same as if you go on holiday to the USA, and buy a DVD from :mad:walmart:mad: or wherever, and bring it home. Do you think they are going to stop you from buying it jut because you're a tourist:rolleyes: Apple, and the recording companies and studios etc are making money if people from other countries purchase content from the US ITS, so I'm sure they secretly like it:D ;)
