Colin I have heard this from my mate in Tamworth, he always has to cry every year when he visits in what we laughingly call a "British Summer". I take him past computer shops and show him online prices, it's revenge for him leaving the UK some 45 years ago. He had to do it whilst I was in the Army, had no one to get him close to the Sheilas anymore so kidnapped a Brit girl, took her to Oz and married her, she must have been very drunk.
Seriously, I don't think these US companies have really understood that the very independent Australian judiciary may take a very hard line on this. Our justice system is stuffed with oldpharts who quite often toe the line when it comes to massively profitable organisations, don't think that will happen in Oz.
