I would think the segmentation is a matter of the reality of marketing as well as the geographic and legal barriers. Digital Downloads definitely reduce the cost of such a small market but how much does one need to invest in lawyers and distributors to allow you to legally sell? I would think a successful product in your local market first helps considerably in researching ROI.
The courts in Australia recently struck down regional protections on copyrighted products, not because there's anything wrong with IMO but simply because not enough product seems to make it in your market.
Its a shame how you are stuck and how naturally it would push those willing to obtain products less than legally. The only solution I could see is freer markets. However, how would your government feel about so much capital leaving the country so easily? Look how the gov'ts block gambling websites.
