@Recchan - music is a special case. But in any case, a licence restricting a retailer to selling a piece of music in the UK does not mean that HMV in Oxford Street, for example, could refuse to sell it to a Polish resident based on the use of a payment card with a Polish IIN/BIN. That is what Apple does with its iTunes stores. I was referring to apps anyway, not to music.
Again, a licence cannot prevent a music shop in France from selling the music to a German resident based on the use of a payment card with a German IIN/BIN.
What do you mean by “a country that doesn’t have Apple pay”? Do you mean:
- A country where Apple Pay cannot be used at points of sale? or
- A country where Apple Pay is not supported for cards issued by local card issuers?
Bear in mind that I can use Apple Pay in Lithuania or any other country where Apple has not yet launched Apple Pay for locally-issued cards. Why should the availability of Apple Pay for local card issuers affect whether or not I can have Apple Pay on a card issued in a country where Apple Pay is available to card issuers? What difference should my postal address make to this?
