Seems that bad PR can happen to other people...

Actually it's not Bioware's or EA's fault. The real fault lies with the lawyers and politicians in the various countries who have chosen to make the laws so complex, difficult and arcane that American companies literally cannot afford to take the time to decode them.
If people in other countries would like to stop being excluded from these U.S. based contests then they should pressure their politicians to rewrite and simplify the existing laws.
But of course that would be a reasonable course of action, something the internet people aren't exactly well known for. Also, it's easier to just blame the evil
than it is to imagine that the fault might possibly lie with anything in your own country.
