Yes. But (and I love Canada) the US market is huge, corporations are
registered and based here, etc. So all I was saying is that the opinion
of the FCC would naturally influence their behavior moreso that that of
regulatory bodies in other jurisdictions. If the FCC happened to say
they interpreted something one way, it would carry a lot of weight.
