I found this post amusing
Yeah - i always find those questions amusing, as the UK just seems like a good place for companies to screw the customer!
Those in the States just smile at how they're not getting screwed! But let's not just blame Canon - let's mention Apple, M$, Adobe - just for starters. I'm quite sure the list goes on but as a Brit being screwed by the EU and the States - I've accepted my lot in life!
