View Thread: Australian Pricing Inquisition
  • User profile image

    Not that I don't sympathize with Australian users, but I'm having trouble understanding this.  Are companies not allowed to set prices for their own products?  Isn't the whole point that if you're not being competitive nobody will buy your product?  What would the ruling be here for the Australian people to get what they want (reasonably priced software)?  You can't tell a company it has to sell it for the exact same rates in one country as another.  Exchange rates change all the time, plus the cost of importing/exporting, and so on.  I don't understand what ruling they could possibly make that would have a meaningful impact on the problem.
