I'm against all kinds of region blocking on the internet. It's

So I say everything should be available everywhere.
Unfortunately it's not so simple. Sometimes it just comes down to whether or not the country in question is willing to allow the contest to happen in their nation, and whether or not they can tax it to hell to take advantage of it.
Granted, I'm not familiar with all laws in all countries, but I can think of a few, especially the Province that I live in, using just that reason to exclude themselves from most world contests.
