Well, you can when you didn't know about this, and honestly, in this day and age, excluding people just because they live in a certain part of the world is just ethically dubious. Seriously.
I work with professional CAD software that is released in Europe 8 hours later than in the US, because of the time difference. You know how much outrage that creates? People are actually completely and utterly insulted by it, but the guys that make the software are in Texas, so what do you expect. It's only 8 hours, but it's about the principle of it.
This is just weird because it seems as if most games on gametap ARE available to everyone, with some minor exceptions. You might wonder as to why someone makes a decision like this. I am actually predicting it will cost more sales that it will gain, and it will create an unpleasant atmosphere and correlation with your product that you want to avoid at all costs. You don't want to meddle with ethics when you're making a game that is about straight fun and even cynical about real world occurences. It just doesn't make sense.
