google video

Tried to access Google Video CSI episode and got:

"We're sorry, but this video is not available in your country."

I fire up LimeWire, type CSI and get hundreds of hits, instantly downloadable.

The reason is likely to do with contracts with companies in various countries who are still 30 episodes back, but how long will this continue? I don't mind paying a little and 1.99 is a nice price - but why make me have to go to LimeWire? (like i have time to watch CSI anyway with a 2 yr. old - who am i kidding!?)

What happens if i'm from the US, travelling and wanting to catch the latest episode? I really don't see the point of this kind of filtering and it makes you feel like a 2nd class web citizen!
